We used frozen cherries to make a fruit-studded cake that's sweet as can be. Serve it on its own as an afternoon snack or with whipped cream for dessert.

Instructions Checklist

  • In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each, then beat in vanilla. With mixer on low speed, add flour mixture, and mix until just combined (batter will be as thick as cookie dough).

  • Spread batter evenly on prepared baking sheet; scatter cherries over the top. Bake cake until golden and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool 10 minutes in pan. Invert onto a wire rack; reinvert onto another rack to cool completely (top side up).

  • To serve, cut cake into triangles with a serrated knife. Dust with confectioners' sugar, if desired.

Cook's Notes

Sprinkle cherries over batter, which will puff up and around the fruit as it bakes.

So easy! I put some orange peel in the batter and studded the top with fresh cranberries. Great treat for the lunch box or to take to work/school.

This is easy and tasty! Good with whipped cream (make it orange with a bit of zest and orange juice, mm-mmm!) Very moist though, so won't cut into triangles quite as neatly as in the photo though...try it as a fork-cake.

This cake is very moist and tastes wonderful with tea. However, mine wouldn't cut like it's shown in the picture. Next time, I'm going to try making it into cupcakes.
