Cherry Pudding Cake

Catherine Thompson Floyd


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.
