  1. Mix cherries, brandy, and 1/3 cup white sugar in a bowl; let soak for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Spray a 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray.
  3. Remove cherries from brandy mixture using a slotted spoon and transfer to the prepared pie pan. Pour brandy mixture into a blender; add remaining 1/3 cup sugar, milk, flour, eggs, vanilla extract, lemon zest, salt, and allspice to the blender. Pulse mixture until batter is smooth; pour over cherries.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and continue baking until golden and puffy, 45 to 50 minutes. Cool slightly and dust with confectioners' sugar to serve.

OH MY GIDDY AUNT is this stuff good. I made it with thawed cherries, expressed the juice out a bit so they would absorb the brandy a bit better, and used a sifter for the confectioner's sugar to...

It was turning brown too early I thought so I turned down the temp. to about 300 and took out of the oven a little early. I served this warm for dessert tonight and it was very good. Looking f...

Came out great so easy to make
