Fresh cherries are here, and there are so many recipes that I love making using fresh cherries. This eggless cherry cake is ine of my fav recipe .
Its so quick and easy , made using yogurt, which results in a soft cake with juicy cherries.”

The main ingredients in this recipe are yogurt and oil. That is what helps make the cake really moist & soft.
The batter is kinda thick, in comparison to any other cake batter, because you want it to hold the cherries, so that they don’t sink in.
You definitely need to pit the cherries, before using them in the cake.
You can mix it in the batter itself, or top the cake with cherries before baking for a beautiful top, like I did. Dust some icing sugar on top, and it can’t get better than that.

  • 2 Tsp Baking Powder

  • 1/4th Tsp of Salt
