Preparation / Directions:
Drain cherries, reserving 1/3 cup syrup, and cut cherries in pieces (about 1/2 cup). Mix flour, baking powder and salt. Beat eggs and sugar together until thick and piled softly. Alternately add dry ingredients and the 1/3 cup cherry syrup to egg mixture, mixing until well-blended after each addition. Mix in cherries and pecans.

Cover and cook on high 2 - 3 hours. Remove bake pan and cool 10 minutes before removing from pan.
