Remember the old tv dinners that had that wonderful cherry dessert that had the cake with the cherries and sauce on the bottom that you wished there were more? This is a recipe very, very similar to just that. Sweet crusty cake, cherries, thick rich sauce to spoon up. Top it off with a dollop of whipped cream or cool whip if you want. Sunday dinner best. This recipe came from my kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Ruth Smith, a most wonderful lady and was posted in a 1960 area cookbook.
1 1/2 tsp
1Blend together the butter and first 1/2 cup sugar. Add flour, baking powder, salt, and milk to make a batter.
2Put the batter in an 8 or 9 inch square pan.
3Put cherries, juice and other 1/2 cup sugar on top (sprinkle the sugar on top).
4Bake at 350 degrees (preheated oven) for 35 to 45 minutes or until dough is done. Batter will rise and cherries will be in a sauce on the bottom.
