lotsa cherries

I recently purchased a cherry pitter and have been pitting for a couple of weeks. Where has this been all my life? Cherries are not big in Texas, so I never bought fresh to cook with, just for snacking. However the cherries in the stores this year seem especially good, so I have been buying and pitting. I would love to make a cherry upside down cake with chocolate batter, but can't seem to find a recipe. Shouldn't be that hard, but I'm not much of an improvisational baker. (?) This was just a cake idea in my head. Anyone made anything like this? With the cherries on the bottom and the batter poured on top, and fresh cherries only, none of that pie stuff. Yuck. Thanks! Or...any unique cherry recipes. No more muffins and such...
