Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9x1-1/2-inch round cake pan. Line bottom of pan with parchment paper and lightly grease the paper. Arrange cherries in bottom of the cake pan; set side. In a large bowl, stir together all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, 2 to 3 teaspoons crystallized ginger, baking powder, ground ginger, and salt. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, brown sugar, and oil. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture; stir just until combined. Spoon batter into prepared pan over cherries, spreading evenly.
