Cherry Cake recipe

Move over strawberry; there’s a new cake in town. Cherries are riper, richer, and have a deeper color than usual summer berries.


3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon dried cloves
1 cup pitted, halved sour cherries
1 lemon, zested


1) Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease and flour an 8-inch round cake pan.

2) Combine eggs, sugar, and oil in a large bowl; beat until smooth. Add flour, baking powder, and cloves; gently beat until blended. Fold in cherries and zest.

3) Pour batter into prepare cake pan. Bake 35 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
