Ingredients

  • 2 cups canned tart cherries, drained

  • ¼ cup brandy

  • cup white sugar, divided

  • cooking spray (such as Pam®)

  • 1 cup milk

  • cup sifted all-purpose flour

  • 3 large eggs

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Mix cherries, brandy, and 1/3 cup white sugar in a bowl; let soak for 1 hour.
