Recipe: The cherry cake you will love!

How are you guys doing? I can't get enough of summer this year. It feels different and I love it. It also happens to be a good cherry year. And that is why I would like to share this recipe with you. If you are like me in love with cherries (Personally I think that summer begins just right when you see first cherries on the market) then this one won't disappoint you. I used frozen cherries this time because I have plenty of it in my freezer from the last year but you are more than welcome to use fresh ones. It will turn out even better. Ready to try?

You need:

400g fresh/frozen cherries 
200g plain flour 
190g butter, room temperature 
140g caster sugar/ powder 
4 eggs 
50g sugar powder for dusting
1 tsp baking powder 
vanilla extract 
pinch of salt 

Step by step:

Preheat the oven to 180° C. Grease and line your round cake tin with baking paper. Cream butter with sugar until it's light and fluffy (around 2 to 3 minutes). Then at slower speed beat in the eggs. One at a time until the mixture is soft. Add vanilla extract. In another bowl sift the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt. Pour the wet ingredients into dry mixture and combine well. And now the sour cherries...fold in fresh or frozen cherries in your cake mixture and don't forget to set some aside for decorations. 


Tip: If your cherries are wet, dust them with flour before you fold them in cake mixture. It will hold all cherry juice in place and prevent your cake from being too soggy.
