Ugly Cake (aka Cherry Cake)
My good friend of
many years died a couple of years ago. She was a very fine cook but stingy
about sharing her recipes.
She did share one with me, however, which she called her Ugly Cake -- a sour
cherry cake. It became
one that I enjoyed making and serving because it is such a lovely moist cake,
exceedingly easy to make, and is a great company dessert.
Ugly Cake (Cherry Cake)
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups sour cherries, drained (reserve liquid and save)
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 eggs, well beaten
2 teaspoons soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 cup chopped nuts
Combine dry ingredients, add eggs, cherries, nuts and butter. Mix well. (This
is when the cake looks ugly. ) Pour into a 9 inch by 13 inch greased cake pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes, or until done.
Juice of 1 can cherries
1/2 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon (heaping) cornstarch
Cook until thickened. Top cake squares with whipped cream, then dribble sauce
over the cream
