I tried baking a cherry cake before, and it was a more traditional sort – the result was not quite what I was looking for. Instead, I searched for a loaf cake recipe, and uncovered this gem, which is apparently adapted from a Good Housekeeping recipe.
It was so delicious, and disappeared very quickly. I couldn’t quite work out whether the cherries had stayed in situ or not – there did seem to be a larger congregation of them at the bottom of the cake, but they were scattered throughout as well. Sort of mixed results, I’d say.
Considering how nervous I am of things that take almost an hour in the oven, I’m really happy with how this one came out, and I’m keen to make it again. I might try two next time, just to make it last a bit longer!
