Whole wheat cherry soft cakes

Written by Veronica Lavenia

Whole wheat cherry soft cakes are a delicious treat for breakfast or as a snack.

Similar to the strawberry season, the cherry season is far too short. These whole wheat cherry soft cakes are very simple but incredibly tasty.

From my experience children are slightly less interested in fruity cakes however they absolutely love these little treats.

Fresh cherries in season give a unique flavor to this delicacy, they are perfect with a little ice cream and served on a summers day.
