I use fresh cherries but you could use tinned.
I have found that sometimes the cherries sink in the cake and sometimes they stay on top I have no idea why, maybe the size of the cherry?
Could you use blueberries probably but I've not tried it.
Chocolate chips and cherry quarters sounds like a good combination.
You could use less sugar, 3/4 cup. Above is the original recip.
This will freeze well.
