I got a half of a kilo of cherries at the mercato on Wednesday. What was i going to do with them??? So I cleaned and pitted them and put them in a small pot with a couple of tablespoons of sugar and let them boil for a few minutes.
I mixed up an all purpose cake batter.
1 1/4 c flour
1 c sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 c oil, I used light in flavor olive oil
3/4 c milk
Mix together in one large bowl. Then add the cherry mixture. Pour in a baking pan. It will be thin. Bake at 350F/160C for about a half hour. Enjoy!
Note: I would have added a tsp of almond extract but I didn't have any!
It's really good. You can exclude the cherries and add 2 tsp of lemon zest for a lemony dessert.
