Our family loves cherries, so this cake is the perfect way to end any meal. The combination of sweet cherries and lemon peel gives the yellow cake a distinctive flavor, and no one can resist the yummy cream cheese topping.

"I've had the recipe for this cake for years--it's a chocolate lover's delight!" writes Ann Purchase of Panama City, Florida. "It's so easy to make...and is perfect for cupcakes and bake sale treats, too. I get many requests for the recipe."
"A friend brought this pretty pink cake to work for a birthday party," notes Judy Lentz of Emmetsburg, Iowa. "You can use any flavor of yogurt, but so far, I don't know anyone who's tried any other than black cherry because it's so delicious."
This dessert is simple to make but looks so beautiful on the buffet. I appreciate easy recipes like this that have impressive results. Since it makes two pans, everyone can save room for a creamy, fruity piece or two.

"A co-worker shared the recipe for these colorful loaves with me," writes Rose Harman of Hays, Kansas. "The red maraschino cherries and green pistachio pudding mix echo the colors of Christmas, so slices make a pretty addition to holiday trays. But their pleasant taste makes them appropriate any time of year."
When our granddaughter visits us on weekends, I try to find something fun for her to do. Since packaged ingredients are simply layered in a pan, this is an easy treat that even a young child can fix.—Melissa Defauw, Auburn Hills, Michigan
