Apple Cherry Butter Cake

You can put a cherry on pretty much everything.

On a sundae,

on a milkshake,

in your cocktail,

in your cookies,

or for this instance, on a cake.

Don’t they just prettify ?

I have apple juice in this cake. And cherries both ON the cake and IN the cake.

Well, at least that was the intention. To have bits of cherries throughout the cake. But it seems like the Maraschinos had other plans. They all decided to go south to the bottom of the cake.

I patted the cherries dry before folding it into the batter. I sprinkled them with flour too. But neither seemed to work. I guess it must have been the batter which wasnt thick enough.

Anyways no point beating yourself about for sunken cherries. It just means you gotta dig deeper to get the good stuffs.

Or you can distract people by cutting the cake into fancy shapes, and of course, top it off with yet another cherry!

    I discovered your blog and after having been through several archives, I just wanted to tell you that you do an amazing job with the recipes you give and with the photographs you take!

    I really enjoy food blogs with pretty food pictures and I think that you are, by far, the one I appreciate the most on this point. So keep going, it is very refreshing to come here 🙂 (and so damn dangerous to bake all sorts of cakes… ;-))

    I love the cut out sponge cake. It adds to the cuteness factor. a cherry on top is always a special treat
