I made this yesterday for my husband's birthday and he loved it. Even though I cheated and used a pound cake mix, I still used this frosting recipe, cutting the sugar down to 1 1/2 cups. The frosting was wonderful and would be great on any type of cake.
I was not impressed, this cake tasted like flour and shortening with cherry pieces. I love the idea of using maraschino cherries in a cake but this was disappointing. Probably will not make again, it is a big cake most of which was wasted.
This is a moist and delicious cake. The recipe makes a big cake. If you love cherries you will love this cake.
Absolutely large, dense beautiful pound cake. I, also used butter flavored shortening. Other adjustments included increasing cherries to 1 1/4 c., substituting 1 1/2 t. vanilla and 1 t. almond extract in place of butternut extract. Since I wanted to display this cake I did not make the frosting. Will definately make again, although frosting would certainly be yummy it truly is not necessary. Watch cooking time, outside was tiny bit dry but everyone raved about taste, beauty and size.
This cake turned out excellent, moist, dense and yes it was a large cake so I took some to work and everyone loved it. I used Watkins doublem strength vanilla for the flavoring. Oh, and to the member who said it tasted like shortening and flour.... honey use butter flavored shortening, anyone who bakes much knows that!
I baked this cake earlier this week. I decided to bring some to work and share it with my co-workers, they loved it, everyone that had a piece loved it - great recipe, especially for those who love cherries
Like another, I cheated and used a boxed pound cake mix. Could not find butternut extract so I substituted 1 ts of vanilla and 1 ts of almond extract. This was absolutely delicious! Would make the original recipe if I needed a large number of servings.
This cake turned out very dry with very little flavor. I would not recommend it.
