Grandpa’s Cherry Cake
From Holly

Family folklore has it that my grandfather loved cherry cake.  When I was small I would make it using a Jiffy cake mix and canned cherry pie filling. Now I make cherry cake from scratch and sour cherries I can in the summer.  In the cherry cake recipe, below I use cherry pie filling since they are easier to find. 

Grandpa's Cherry Cake

3   eggs

1 cup   sugar

1 cup vegetable oil

2 - 1/2 cups flour

3 tsp baking powder

1 can cherry pie filling

1/2 cups sugar

1/4 cups milk

2 Tbs flaxseed ground (optional)

1 zest from one lemon

    Preheat oven 350 degrees.

2    Mix ingredients in the eggs, sugar and oil.  Add the flour and baking powder.  Add a 1/2 cup of sugar to cherry pie filling and stir well.

3    Grease a square baking dish and put in cherry pie filling on the bottom of the dish and the pour over batter over the cherries.
       Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
