Fresh Cherry Cake

The  cherry cake is one of my family’s favorite and also mine. So , when I saw the frozen cherries in the supermarket I couldn’t stop myself and bought a bag and made this delicious cherry cake . This is made after my mother’s recipe  from a very old dessert cookbook that she has from her young days .

She made this cake since I was little and I’ve always loved it  so much. And, is also so easy to make , is fluffy  and full of flavor and can be made with any other kind of fruits .
