Sour Cherry Cake Recipe

Hello everybody and welcome! This is a sour cherry cake recipe. Now I am going to guide you step by step on how to make this simple and delicious cake. Make yourself at home and enjoy!

Before we start:
Sour cherries is a species of common cherries. The only real difference is the taste. Well, as the name suggests, sour cherries are more sour. This is due to the higher acidity levels.

Sour cherries are most popular in Europe and Asia. Some people don't eat this fruit raw and on its own because they think it's too sour for them.

Personally, I think that if sour cherries are completely ripe they are not sour at all. I would say that they are more sort of sweet and sour.

Cherries, on the other hand, are just sweet and it sometimes gets too boring, especially if you add them to a cake that is already sweet. Sour cherries combine both sourness and sweetness, which makes them more original.

You can also eat more of sour cherries than plain cherries. This is because the acids in the sour cherries help your stomach to digest the fruit.

When you add sour cherries into something sweet such as a cake, the combination is great. Again, the cake becomes not purely sweet but rather with a hint of pleasant sourness which balances the flavours.
