Sourcream Cherry Cake/Sourcream Cherry Coffee Cake

Some candied cherries were sitting in my fridge for a while to get finished, obviously i cant think other than baking with them. When i was purchasing my groceries, i couldnt stop myself to grab a box of sour cream, back home i was very much tempted to give a try to one of the most spongy and dangerously addictive sourcream cake with loads of cherries. Almost like pound cake, this cake came out extremely succulent with an incredible spongy texture. We loved it very much. Though this cake calls for sourcream, butter is a must and also you cant skip eggs in this cake. All these ingredients when whisked together makes this excellent spongy cake.

This sourcream cherry cake makes an excellent snack time cake or else a holiday special cake, if you want to make this cake more delicious, dont forget to add some dry fruits or else candied fruits. Yes you can prepare this same cake as a Christmas special cake as well. However i want to stick with cherries  hence i baked this cake simply with candied cherries. If you are searching for a snack time cake, dont forget to give a try to this beautiful cake. This cake is going to be a part of this month's bake-a-thon, a baking event am running for this whole month and i will be blogging baked goodies thrice a week for this event.
