Cherry Cake


IMG_6540My Cherry Cake is sweet and light as a cloud for a sunny afternoon with my little family.

Serves 8


  • 500g of cherries
  • 80g of plain flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • 125g of white granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar
  • 60g of melted butter
  • 70 ml of milk


  1. Wash the cherries, remove the stem and keep the pit.
  2. In a bowl add the eggs then the white granulated sugar, the vanilla sugar and the pinch of salt.
  3. Whisk until the mixture whitens.
  4. Pour the melted butter and whisk again.
  5. Add the flour and whisk until the flour is incorporated.
  6. Grease and flour a round baking pan (for me a stoneware baking pan the taste is better).
  7. Preheat the oven to 180C degrees.
  8. Add the cherries in the bottom and pour your mixture on the top.
  9. Bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean; remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool for 30 minutes.
  10. Serve  the cherry cake with a coulis or just dust with icing sugar on the top.

The cake is extremely light and I kept the pit of the cherries to give to the cake more flavor and accompanied with an espresso for a nice afternoon.

Bon Appetit.
