Sweet cherries are great just eating them as they are. However, we picked so much cherries that I have to bake something with them. I found this recipe which uses sweet cherries. It’s a pudding cake.
This pudding cake is so juicy that juices over run onto my oven. So, if you would like to attempt this recipe, use a bigger pan or put an aluminum foil lined baking sheet below your pan to catch the juices.
- 3 cups cherries, pitted, thawed if frozen
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt (necessary)
- 1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
- 1/2 cup milk
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 cup boiling water
I must say that the most tedious part of this recipe is pitting the cherries.
Preheat the oven to 350F.
This Cherry Pudding Cake is great for breakfast or snack at tea break.
