Personal Notes:
I lost this recipe for many years and finally found it again about 10 years ago. Very much like a pound cake. Beat well. This cake freezes well wrapped in moisture proof wrap. Thaw at room temp. Can be made in coffee cans etc. Travels well.
Substitute Dried Cranberries for cherries and 2 T orange juice for milk and 1 tsp grated orange peel.
