  • Prep Time
  • 12Servings

Ingredients

  • 4 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 sticks (12 ounces) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 10 ounce bags frozen cherries, thawed and drained

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees . Grease a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. In a medium bowl, using your fingers, combine 3 cups flour, the brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Mix in all but 2 tablespoons butter until large crumbs form; set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining 2 tablespoons butter, the egg and the buttermilk.

In a medium bowl, stir together the remaining 1 1/2 cups flour, the granulated sugar, baking powder and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Add the egg mixture and stir to form a thick, smooth batter. Fold about a third of the reserved crumb mixture into the batter; spread evenly into the prepared baking dish.

Scatter the cherries over the batter; sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture on top. Bake the cake until golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool for about 20 minutes before serving.
