Cherry Nut Bundt Cake

This is a fun cake to make for special occasions and it looks so pretty on your plate. It’s so good.  It’s been a favorite cake of mine for a long time. I particularly like the explosion of flavor when I bite into a chunk of maraschino cherry.

Butter and sour cream make this a really moist cake and it keeps well too. We don’t normally eat a lot of cake but this cake is always one my family looks forward to. A scoop of ice cream adds a nice touch.
