Cherry Summer Dessert
Cherry Summer Dessert - one of my favorite childhood desserts. Very easy to put all ingredients together and the interesting thing about this cake is the fact that while baking it forms by itself 3 different layers.
I simply love the refreshing taste the cherries on top bring to this cake. But you can also choose to make it simple, without fruits, for a classic and elegant dessert. Can be made all year round, even for holiday tables.
