This is one delicious cake! I've made it twice, the most recent for one of my Bible Study members as a birthday cake. The original recipe only states an 8-inch tube pan, so I decided to experiment. I made 1 1/2 recipes, and it fit into my full-size Bundt pan just beautifully. Based on some of the other reviews, I decided to up the amount of cherries--I used two jars--a 16-oz and a 10-oz. In addition, I used 1 cup of cake flour with 2 cups of all-purpose. This made a lighter, more tender cake. I also added close to 2 T. almond extract, since the honoree loves almond. Sifting the flour also helps. I used reduced-fat cream cheese, and about 2 2/3 sticks butter. I made a simple powdered sugar glaze, with the juice from the cherries, and some almond extract. Everyone loved it. This is a definite keeper!
