Coffeecake, Cherry (D, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Serves: 9-12

4 oz. unsalted butter
8 oz. sugar
3 eggs
5 oz. flour
grated rind of one lemon
1 can sour pitted cherries

Preheat oven to 325°F. Soften the butter and use a small portion to grease a 9"x14" pan.

Place some bread crumbs in a thin layer in the greased pan.

Separate the eggs. Beat the egg whites until stiff.

In another bowl beat the butter, sugar, egg yolks, and rind until well mixed.

Then alternately fold in the flour and the beaten egg whites. Spread the whole mix into the pan.

Drain the cherries and place them evenly over the batter. Bake until the top is golden brown, approximately 30 minutes.

When cool, cut into squares and dust tops with powdered sugar (put it in a sieve and shake it over the cake.)

Poster's Notes:
This recipe, you're gonna love. My husband's customer would always make it and send it home for us. I finally got her to give the recipe to me just lately. This is delicious! Try it.
