Cherry Jubilee Cake for Father’s Day

We had an unusually rainy spring this year and the result was a phenomimal cherry harvest. What’s even better is that they are completely organic, we never sprayed the tree for 35 years. IMG_6584

The cake I made is a chiffon cake recipe that I use for all special occasions. I cooked the cherries into a compote and allowed the syrup to absorb the layer before frosting.

Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful fathers we have known in our lives. They are the best and deserve our love and gratitude forever.
