This is a fruit cake that will not be shoved in the back of the cabinet. Our family use to go to the mall and visit a candy store that sold differnt varieties of candies and dried fruit. My aunt brought what seemed to be tons of dried cherries to put in this cake, and to eat.
1Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees. Next spray a bundt pan and set aside.
2Make your streusel topping by combinding the flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and cinnamon. Stir in the melted butter making sure that everything is coated, mixture will be lumpy. Set aside.
