This was simple to make and delicious! My husband loved that it wasn't overly sweet (though I thought that it was really sweet!) I love baking that only requires one bowl for all the ingredients. I didn't have fresh cherries on hand so I used a jar of pitted sour cherries (680grams net weight/350grams drained weight) -- this met the recipe requirements perfectly and I used the liquid from the jar as the cherry juice. I will make this again, next time I will only add 3/4 the required amount of sugar if using jarred sour cherries. A great way to use up that old jar of sour cherries we had kicking around our cupboard.

Just in case you're like me & hadn't heard of "dump pudding," it's basically a cobbler. :) Obviously lots of people love this recipe & were able to finesse it to turn out successfully, but I was underwhelmed, especially with how long it took to pit those cherries! I love the flavor of the fresh cherries right on top & that portion of the dish deserves more than 3 stars. However, my cake turned out unevenly baked, & overall it was dry. In order for me to enjoy eating it, it had to be served with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream to add moisture. I think this problem can be repaired by baking longer at a lower oven temp (350?). Also, the cake's flavor isn't decadent, but perhaps that's my fault: I only added about 1 c of juice b/c prior to baking, the pudding looked so full & gooey already, I was afraid of adding too much & it not cooking. More juice would have really helped but I still feel it needs a stronger butter flavor. **One tip: be sure to put your dish on a cookie sheet to keep your oven clean! As far as making this recipe again, I would use the method of the raw cherries alone on top, but with a different cake recipe underneath.

This recipe was incredibly easy and delicious. A very satisfying dessert for a busy weeknight dinner! We used a jar of pitted sour cherries, as fresh cherries were not in season.

I made this with 3 tablespoons butter, 1 1/3 cups sugar, 1 can of sour cherries, and juice from the can topped off with water to 1 cup. I also added a tiny pinch of allspice and cinammon and baked it in a casserole pan. It puffed up in the oven and I served it right away with ice cream, it was SOO GOOD!!!

YUM! My cherries were very tart/tangy so it wasn't too sweet. I substituted brown sugar for some (about 1/4 cup) of the sugar and sprinkled a little cinnamon on the cherries before pouring on the juice. By the way, this is not really a 'pudding'. It is more like a yummy cake with a cherry topping!
