Quick and easy apple and cherry cake

Cakes can be tricky business sometimes, but not this beauty! In what might possibly be the easiest cake recipe ever, all you have to do is throw all the ingredients in one bowl, mix together with a wooden spoon and you’re good to go. It’s beautiful served warm with a nice drizzle of cream or cut into squares and served at room temperature with a cuppa. Happy baking!
