How to make it

  • For topping:
  • Blend first 4 ingredients in processor until nuts are coarsely chopped. Add butter; using on/off turns, blend until coarse crumbs form.

Using electric mixer, beat butter in large bowl until fluffy. Gradually add both sugars and beat until well blended. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, then lemon peel and vanilla. Blend sour cream and milk in small bowl. Beat in sour cream mixture alternately with dry ingredients in 3 additions each. Spread half of cake batter in prepared pan. Sprinkle half of topping over; cover with apples and cherries. Spread remaining batter over; sprinkle with remaining topping.

    That sounds delicious, moist and PERFECT - I would use pears or apples, and I'm sure it will be great either way. Thanks Sunny!
