I bought a few too many cherries and decided to bake with some of them. I came across this recipe for a simple cherry cake that looked easy and tasty. I love easy recipes, especially when they involve fruit so that the fruit can really shine through.
I was able to make the cake batter in a matter of minutes. And I love how the cherries are studded throughout the cake. The texture of the cake was a little denser than I would have liked. It reminded me of the strawberry cake I made a few months ago, but not as sweet.
I’m still in the search for a simple fruit cake that is also light and fluffy. If anyone has any good recommendations, please share.
