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.

A cross between a cake and a cobbler, this pudding is a hit whenever I make it to share at a potluck. My family insists I make an extra batch to leave at home. A neighbor shared the recipe over 30 years ago.

Dried cherries and almond flavoring give this tender golden cake from our Test Kitchen a sweet-tart flavor, and crushed almonds lend a nice crunch to each tasty square. It's great for snacking or afternoon tea.
When you present this eye-catching dessert on your table, you'll be thanked with many "ooohs" and "aaahs".

"This recipe was given to me by a friend years ago," says Tessa Downing from Doylestown, Pennsylvania. "It's the perfect cake to mix up at the last minute. Choose any fruit pie filling, such as blueberry, peach or apple. If you use apple, sprinkle a little cinnamon on top."
