Turn your favorite cake recipe—chocolate cake, pound cake, even carrot cake—into a cherry cake, just by mixing a cup of dried cherries into the batter.
Or, stir 1/4 cup of died cherries into the filling or frosting.
Instead of making cherry cheesecake with a cherry topping, stir dried cherries into the batter.
Any way, you’ve got a new variation on a favorite recipe, with no more effort than measuring out the cherries.
While you’re at it, sprinkle some dried cherries atop the icing of other cakes and cupcakes. They make a pretty, tasty and healthy garnish. Montmorency (tart) cherries are among the highest-antioxidant foods.
