How to Make It

Step 1

Make streusel: Mix flour, sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl. Use a pastry blender or fingertips to cut in butter until mixture forms pea-size crumbs.

Step 2

Make cake: Preheat oven to 350°F; butter an 8-inch round baking pan.

Step 3

In a bowl, mix flour with baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat butter and sugar until light. Beat in eggs one at a time. Reduce mixer speed to low and add flour mixture, alternating with milk and vanilla. Gently fold in cherries.

Step 4

Spread batter in baking pan, sprinkle with streusel and bake until lightly browned on top and a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, 50 to 55 minutes. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes before serving.

Very good

Buttery, very simple and tasty. It's a lot of batter for an 8" pan, and it took 65 minutes to bake until middle was done.
