    Made this today from the first picking of my sour cherry tree. It is more like a coffee cake and really good. Sweet enough for me and a great combination of sour and sweet. Will definitely make again.

    I doubled this recipe to take to my work potluck and I wasn't wowed. The cake just seemed to be lacking something. I don't think I would make this again.

      It's because you doubled the recipe- it doesn't always work

    These are DELICIOUS. This is my absolute favorite recipe for sour cherries. It reminds me of a marriage of pound cake and cherry crisp. The sour cherries help it to not be too sweet. Yum.

    This is a good recipe. It is not overly sweet, and therefore was not well-suited to a dessert. Definitely great as a coffee cake.

    I just baked this with cherries I picked at a local berry patch. Absolutely delicious! I'm on my 2nd piece!
