Servings: 8 people


  • 2 cups dark sweet cherries deseeded and roughly chopped
  • 2 cups unbleached flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ cup sugar + 1 tbsp divided
  • 3 dashes nutmeg
  • 2 eggs or egg substitute of choice
  • 1 cup milk I use unsweetened coconut
  • cup melted refined coconut oil
  • ½ teaspoon pink salt or sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon of both almond extract and vanilla extract


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 and oil a baking dish. I used a 9x6 white baking dish.
  • Using a knife and cutting board pit 2 cups of cherries using one of the methods above in the post. Once they are pitted roughly chop them and place them into a bowl and sprinkle 1 tablespoon of sugar on them. Set aside
  • In a medium mixing bowl measure in flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg and mix well.
  • Next, put in eggs, milk, melted coconut oil, and extracts. Once all these ingredients are in the bowl mix together well with a wooden spoon. Do not over mix, just well enough until everything is mixed well.
  • Gently fold in the chopped cherries then pour into the prepared baking dish.
  • Bake at 350 for about 50 minutes or until cake is lightly brown on top and knife inserted comes out clean.
