This is one of my favorite desserts. It’s simple yet elegant. It’s not overly involved or overly sweet. Most importantly, it’s delicious!
-1/2 c sugar
-6 Tbsp butter, melted and cooled slightly
-1 c flour
-1 c milk
-1/2 tsp almond extract
-2.5 c frozen cherries, thawed
Beat the sugar and eggs together with a whisk until they lighten in color. Gradually add butter, beating to incorporate. Add the flour and whisk until everything is evenly incorporated into the batter. Next slowly pour in the milk a little at a time. Add the extract, mixing well.
Place the cherries in a greased round baking dish or cake pan (9 or 10 inches in diameter). Pour the batter over the fruit. Bake at 400 25 to 30 minutes, until slightly browned and almost completely set in the middle. Let sit at least 15 minutes before serving in wedges. Dust with powdered sugar if desired.
