I have made this cake a few times and my cherries always sank even after using the tip but today i decided to put the cherries (minus the flour) on the top just before going in the oven and it worked a treat. My cherries sank but ended up evenly placed throughout the cake. - 09 Feb 2014
I tried this recipe today.. the batter is so incredibly thick that it is extremely difficult to smooth it out... Baked OK but due to the unevenness of the batter the middle sank in and so the look of the middle was not good at all. is the batter suppose to be so so thick?
I folded in the coated cherries as stated, but they still sank to the bottom. On the up side the taste was good. - 26 May 2013
