I know there is a way round this, and completely forgot about it.

Is it mixing them with the flour first?

Yes.

Yeah. Coat in flour should help.

Also I put more in than the recipe says. That helps too.

Yes Mary Berry told me preen to make the mixture a little thicker when adding chic chips etc to batter.

Aha just remembered, the Delia method is to toss in ground almonds

I used to have a cherry cake recipe that had twice the weight of flour that you'd expect for 2 eggs, but, unfortunately, I've lost it.

this is the only cherry cake I have made where the cherry don't sink to the bottom. It is a very thick cake mix rather then say a victoria sponge mix.

That's the one I used! The cherries sank to the bottom, and bizarrely to one side

I don't know then.

I have been known to use double the quantity of cherries. So maybe they have know room to sink grin.
