Take note that you need to make this cake a day ahead of serving, to properly let the bourbon glaze soak into the cake.
Spray a standard size cup capacity bundt pan with cooking oil evenly, then dust lightly with flour. Make the cake batter by placing the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, butter, oil and vanilla in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment.
Recipe: Zelpha's Hot Pepper Sauce
Mix on medium speed until the butter and oil are incorporated and the mixture starts to look a bit like wet sand. While the mixer is turned on low, slowly drizzle the wet ingredients into the mixer bowl, occasionally stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Once the wet ingredients are incorporated into the batter, fold in the chopped cherries.
Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 to 70 minutes, or until a toothpick or skewer comes out clean. Once the cake is baked, let cool in the baking pan on a wire rack for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, make the glaze by combining the butter, sugar, bourbon, sweet vermouth and salt in a medium saucepan. Cook on high until boiling, then reduce heat to a simmer.
Be careful, as the glaze will bubble up at first. Simmer the glaze for 5 to 7 minutes or until the glaze starts to thicken slightly. Once the cake has finished cooling for 20 minutes it will still be warm , invert it onto a wire rack and release it from the pan. You might need to coax it out a bit with a thin knife. The cake should now be upside down in the bundt pan. Using a skewer, poke several holes all over the bottom of the cake. Then, using a spoon, drizzle some of the glaze over the bottom of the cake while it is still in the pan. Continue to do this until all the glaze has been poured over the cake.
