Perfect Cherry Cake

I love cherries, and today I want to share with you this amazing and simple recipe: the perfect Cherry cake.

One of the things I love the most in this season is the cherries season, I can eat 500 grams cherries every day, you can give me cherries and I will be the happiest person on earth.

Although I like the cherries fresh, today I decided to make a cake just to mix things up a little bit, and let me tell you there is nothing better than a piece of cake with vanilla ice cream on top, especially in these hot days we have ahead of us.
