This simple and elegant honey cherry cake is made with loads of fresh cherries, a kirsch-flavored whipped cream and honey! It’s the perfect summer cake and a great way to use up some of those summer cherries! And, if you’re making this cake in the off-season, canned cherries will work great, too.
What I love about this cherry cake is that it isn’t too sweet – the cake itself is made only with honey as a natural sweetener and the whipped cream has just a touch of sugar. If you’re not a fan of super sweet cakes, this cake is for you! Once the cherries are baked, they become like little pots of sweet jam baked right into the cake. It’s also very moist and tender but not heavy. You’ll love the way the cake just disappears in your mouth and I guarantee you, you’ll be coming back for seconds!

Every bite of this cherry cake is tender, moist and packed with cherry flavor! If you love whipped cream with your cakes, make a large batch to have some extra on the side (I always do!)
