    Pour the cherries into the prepared dish and set aside.
  3. Step 3

    In a small bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, milk, eggs, vanilla, and salt to form a light, thin batter.
  4. Step 4

    Pour the batter over the cherries, place in the heated oven, and bake 45 minutes, or until the cake is browned and puffed around the edges and the center is set.

    For best flavor, allow the cake to cool a bit so it won't burn the mouth, but is still quite warm. (Leftovers can be rewarmed in a microwave oven before serving.)
