3 cheers for cake! sour cherry almond yogurt cake

I made this cake way back in the first week of March and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. We were invited to a friend’s house for dinner and I said I’d bring dessert. I wasn’t sure exactly what I’d make but this recipe called out to me with it’s almond-y goodness and my love of sour cherries sealed the deal. It’s a very good cake. And it’s pretty easy to whip up on a sunny afternoon.

And as you can see from the photos, it’s also easily transportable by bike as long as you’ve got a nice basket set up and a cute vintage cake tin!

Now the weather is sunnier and warmer and more frequent bike rides with stops on sunny patios are calling my name. Last month I spent a week in sunny LA and have been living on the tropical bougainvillea fumes ever since. I can’t really complain though because ever since we’ve returned to Vancouver, we’ve been given an early summer with sandals, picnics in parks and balcony layouts. It’s a nice breather because in June I’m scheduled for foot surgery (arthritis in both my big toes) and I’m pretty scared about it all. My only surgery experience involved tonsils and I was in kindergarten at the time, so it’s kind of a big deal. Also the fact that I’ll need another surgery on my other foot when this one heals up isn’t exactly Netflix and chill time. I guess it’s good that I’ve been attending Sunday afternoon yoga classes at a local studio to help ease my mind and body.

I should also let you all know that I’ll be at the always awesome Got Craft? market this May 7 + 8. Say hello, wish me a happy birthday on the Sunday and stay for all the amazing local crafters! I’ll be selling my cards and there will be tons of amazing talent and lots of local yummy food vendors too!
