Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a mixing bowl, whisk 1 cup sugar, flour, baking powder, and baking soda together until evenly combined.
  2. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the pitted cherries in the butter until they are tender, sprinkling them with 1 tablespoon of sugar, 8 to 10 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Form a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and pour in 1/2 cup olive oil, eggs, and yogurt; use your fingers to lightly stir the liquid ingredients into the flour mixture to make a soft dough. Scrape the batter into a 9x12-inch baking dish. Drizzle the batter with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and top with the cherries.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the cake is set and golden on top, about 40 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center of the cake should come out clean.

I really screwed this one up the first time through :) Always good to remember to add the sugar! But I also cooked the cherries per the directions and ended up accidentally caramelizing them. ...

Would add at least another 1/2 cup cherries. Not sure I likes olive oil taste. May try canola oil and vanilla yogurt next time. Will serve with ice cream and maybe more berries.

The only change I made was to use sour cream for the yogurt. This definitely is a more dry cake and I like mine a little more moist, so I may experiment and add more sour cream/yogurt next time...

I used vanilla yogurt instead of plain. Also used 2 1/2 cups of cherries. Served it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Yum!

This is spectacular! I usually use sour cherries as I enjoy them more, and I substituted some of the flour with almond flour. It's very easy to make and it's really moist, everything a good cake...
