How to present the cherries sinking to the bottom of your Tea Loaf:

Cut whole cherries into halves or smaller pieces. Whole cherries can be too heavy for the cake batter, causing them to sink. By cutting the cherries into smaller pieces, you reduce the risk of this happening. After cutting the cherries, dust them in some flour before adding it to the batter.
