Oh deary me. Having my brother around is not going to be good for my post-baby waist. Look at the things he requests!
Adapted from Fix-It and Forget-It Best of Mennonite Fellowship Meals
1 cup + 3 T softened butter
2 1/4 cups cane sugar
6 large eggs
3/4 t vanilla extract
1 t almond extract
1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
3-4 cups cherry pie filling
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, beating well after each one. Add extracts and mix.
Stir flours, baking powder, and salt together. Add to creamed mixture and mix well.
Butter and flour a half-sheet pan. Pour batter in and spread it out. Drizzle/dollop cherry pie filling over batter. Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes or until golden and a toothpick inserted in a cake-y part comes out clean.
Cool in pan. Dust with powdered sugar just before serving, if desired.
