As I had so many cherries, I thought it would be nice to make a cake with some of them, so I had a bit of a search online and found a recipe for Fresh Cherry Cake with a hint of cinnamon at the BBC Good Food website
The cake is easy to make as it uses a batter-type mixture made with melted butter rather than creaming. The cherries go on top of the batter, as I don’t have a cherry stoner, I halved the cherries and removed the stones with a knife.
The cherries are then topped with a crumble mixture. I found the recipe was rather heavy on butter and light on flour so added a bit more so I could get it to the correct crumble consistency (like breadcrumbs) I used spelt flour for the crumble as I love the added flavour and texture that it provides.
You don’t get a lot of rise with the cake, probably due to the moisture in the fruit, the cake is not over sweet and I would say it is more suitable for dessert rather than as a slice of cake, but we did eat, and enjoy it as both.
