Cake with cherries and brown sugar

Soft Cake with cherries and sugar cane. This is a cake for those who love the soft cakes, buttery, aromatic hydrocarbons, with a slight hint of caramel. For the recipe I got free inspiration from plum cake of Primrose Bakery in London, but I changed a little’ the amount to make this cake a little’ less sweet, buttery and rich. I also replaced the plums with cherries in Ravenna, whose slight acidity contrasts well with the sweetness of this pie that is great for breakfast, But even for dinner if you have guests accompanied by a scoop of vanilla ice cream or yogurt, to further increase the acidity of the dish. If you like sweets with cherries, Also try the cremosissima tart cherry and lemon custard or the particular tart balsamic cherries and treat yourself to a nice Cherry jam homemade breakfast can be enjoyed all year round.
