It’s cherry season! Every year as summer approaches I look forward to all the BC cherries filling up our grocery stores and markets. These dark and luscious cherries start to appear usually around the third week in June, and sometimes you can find the late ripening varieties well into August, which is amazing! There’s just nothing better than fresh Okanagan grown cherries.
Once cherries arrive I always have containers of them in the fridge, washed and ready to eat. We eat cherries for snacks, I take bags of them with us on road trips, on hikes and to the beach…they’re a perfect, ready to eat snack and I love them so much. And this is where I won’t tell you that my husband and I ate almost an entire bag of cherries before bed last night… 😉
And because I love to create in the kitchen, I also can’t resist adding cherries to my cooking and baking. Their sweet cherry flavour is a delicious addition to so many recipes…especially cakes! So guess what I made? A Cherry Buttermilk Breakfast Cake that is a perfect recipe for fresh cherries.
The sweet and tender crumb of this vanilla cake is the most delicious base for fresh cherries. In every bite you taste vanilla cake, and sweet cherries. Oh and don’t forget the crunchy sugar crust…so so good.
This cake is always a hit when I make it, and honestly never lasts more than 2 days around here. I can barely resist it right out of the oven…especially the centre piece…life is too short not to get an inside piece.
This might be called a breakfast cake, but rest assured, you can eat this cake any time of day. Seriously. Any time. 😉Print
