  • Use fresh and pitted cherries.
  • You can also use frozen or canned cherries instead of fresh cherries. If using frozen cherries, thaw them in the refrigerator overnight. Remember that canned cherries contain high amounts of sugar.
  • You can use a pit extractor or a pipette to remove the seeds from the cherries.
  • Use all-purpose flour for moist and fluffy muffins.
  • Make sure you measure the flour correctly. Use a kitchen scale to measure your flour. But if you don't have a scale, rise your flour with a spoon. Then put them in cups and flatten them with a knife. Otherwise, too much flour will lead to a hard and dry cake.
  • Use ingredients at room temperature. Take the egg, butter, and milk-based ingredients out of the refrigerator at least an hour before to bring them to room temperature. In this way, the cake will have an even texture. Otherwise, the cake batter may clump together.
  • Do not overbeat the eggs. If too much air enters the dough, it can expand too much in the oven, causing the cake to dry out.
  • Do not overmix the dough. Excessive mixing can result in a hard and dry cake texture. While combining the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients, fold them in with the spatula to keep the dough light and fluffy.
  • Grease the baking dish or line it with parchment paper. In this way, the cake does not stick or fall apart.
  • Check the oven temperature. If the oven is too hot, the cakes may dry out.
  • Do not overbake the cake. Check if the cake is cooked with the toothpick test. If the toothpick comes out clean, it is cooked.
  • Allow the cake to cool before removing it from the mold.
  • You can use cherry juice, cherry liqueur, or brandy to enhance the cherry flavor.
  • Kirsch brandy enhances the cherry flavor of the syrup used in the cake. You can choose another brandy or rum if you wish.
  • You can add a little lemon zest to the dough for a citrus flavor.
