Cherry Snack Cake

4

This is one of my favorite lunch box offerings. My kids often requested this of me when they were little. I haven't made this for awhile and was thrilled to stumble across my recipe tonight. Christopher is home for the weekend and this will put a smile on his face when I pack some of it up for him on his return trip back to school tomorrow.

8
2 sticks of softened butter
2 cups flour
2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 cup sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 pound thawed frozen cherries or jarred sour cherries, drained(I use a jar of Morello cherries from Trader Joe's)
powdered sugar for dusting
Preheat oven to 325. Spray a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. In a mixing bowl with a mixer beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition....
