Cherry Cake

This sounds like a lovely alternative if you like cherries but don’t want cherry pie (although why would you NOT want cherry pie????) This recipe calls for fresh cherries rather than maraschino cherries, and I imagine it won’t be as sweet as some cakes out there. To pit fresh cherries, you can use a cherry pitter (small handheld device that looks a bit like a hole punch), a skewer or a chop stick. However you choose to do it, you don’t have to mangle your fingers or the cherries, just be sure you get all the pits out, otherwise it will be a painful bite for someone!

1 cup milk

1 cup sugar
