An afternoon passed picking up cherries, where for each one put in the basket there were another thrown directly in my mouth… Beautiful, many, juicy, crunchy and sweet.
Cherries’ time pass away too quickly e you have to benefit from this! For example putting them in a delicious cake. Moist, soft and rinch in this irresistible fruit… I’ve found the recipe in the Sigrid’s blog, where sometimes I take a look. Some little change and here you have, without difficulty, a wonderful cherry and almonds cake. Do it until there are cherries and I’m sure that the next year you’ll do it again 😉
