I only gave this recipe four stars because I changed it a bit, but the result was great. First, I halved the cake recipe. With an elextric beater, I blended the margarine (the shortening) and sugar, then blended in the eggs, cherry juice, and milk, then threw in the flour, baking powder, and salt, and blended the whole thing. I chopped up a dosen cherries and mixed them in (and omitted the nuts). I poured the batter into a 9x9 square baking pan lined with wax paper and put it in the 350F oven. It only needed 20 minutes to bake before a toothpick came out clean. Cut into squares, these are like Cherry Sponge Cake Bars. They are sweet enough on their own and do not require frosting. Next time I would consider increasing the amount of cherry juice and chopped cherries.
