Notes about this recipe

    I assume that Cenk was using darker sour cherries that he has available in Turkey. The montmorency (or balaton if you're lucky) that we get from Michigan are much lighter in color, but still amazingly flavorful. This cake is a bit of a revelation. I adore sour cherries, but don't always have time to make pie. This cake is so simple, and comes together in a (relative) flash. I added 1/4 tsp of almond extract the second time I made this cake, and I really liked the ever-so-slight flavor it added.

    This cake is delicious. I was worried about the amount of fat in the batter (10 tablespoons of butter plus almond flour), but it was moist and not at all greasy. I needed 10 minutes more of baking time so that the center of my cake was cooked through. Even so, my cherries weren't as dark as in the picture.
