Cherry Honey Cake
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!
Kirsch Whipped Cream
Every bite of this cherry cake is tender, moist and packed with cherry flavor, including the topping! I top the cake with a simple frosting – kirsch whipped cream. This easy frosting is made with heavy cream, sugar and cherry liqueur! If you love whipped cream with your cakes, make a large batch to have some extra on the side (I always do!) The whipped cream adds a light and airy component to the cake recipe that just can’t be missed!
