Mini Cherry Cakes, Blessed Christmas !

I bought a box of fresh cherries this morning from a wet market and thinking to bring back to hometown for my mother to enjoy it. Since i also planning to bake a butter cake which is my mother favourite's cake, so i also add some cherry on it..

Hi Sonia

I tried baking this Cherry Mini Cakes last weekend and it is well received by my girls. I bought a mini cupcake tray (like yours) and I used strawberry instead. The colour turn out to be very lovely and my girls thought that I bought instead of baking it.

Thanks for your sharing your recipe ;o).
