Sour Cherry Cake is my favorite cake and the best thing about it is that I can whip it up in less than 8 minutes.
I love Morello Cherries and I always have an extra bottle at home. I get them at Trader’s Joes, one of my favorite stores in town. It’s a little bit of drive, but whenever I get to TJ’s I stock up on stuff like Morello Cherries:-) This easy dessert was taught by my grandma. I will never forget the measurements she used. I am making this cake the way she was making it. I was about 8-10 years old when she showed me how to make this fantastic Sour Cherry cake. It is not your regular super sweet dessert; it’s rather a nice little snack which is delicious with a good glass of milk. This recipe never fails. Never. I love it, my husband loves it ( he only eats it if I make it with whole grain flour) and my kids, of course, eat the whole thing at once when I bake this cake.
You can absolutely substitute the cherries with any other fruits. I love it with sour cherries, though.
