I made two versions of this recipe today. Both delicious. I had 1 1/2 - 2 c. dark sweet cherries to use up, so I cleaned and pitted them, sprinkled with a couple of Tbl. of sugar and split them between the two recipes, omitting the maraschino cherries. The first batch, I used only 1/2 c. sugar and added 1 tsp. vanilla, 1/4 tsp ginger and 1/3 c. toffee bits. It took longer to bake because of the fresh cherries, but is very reminiscent of a Banana Split. The second batch I used White Whole Wheat flour, no sugar, 1/4 c. dark corn syrup, and low fat vanilla yogert instead of mayo. I also kept the vanilla, ginger and toffee bits in this recipe. I think I actually prefer the ones with yogert. They're less dense, more cake-like, but still delicious! Great recipe. Thanks for sharing.
