Cherry yogurt cake

This easy Cherry Greek Yogurt cake is a no-fuss recipe with a fluffy,soft crumb,bursting with fruity flavor!!

It's not officially summer yet,but it's definitely cherry season and that means it's time to make all your favorite cherry treats.We all know that fresh cherries are best consumed as they are,but they also taste amazing in desserts.
Over the last 2 weeks we have had an extremely hot weather here and it seems this had a positive side as well,grocery stores are bursting with fresh seasonal produce.And i actually got really excited when i saw all those colorful fruits and veggies at store the other day. I went shopping some veggies and i brought home  peaches,nectarine,cherries and strawberries instead. I know,lots of fruit but we've already eaten half of it and the remaining ones will end up into some baked goods.
I've already made a strawberry crumble,a peach cheesecake comes to my mind as well but today's post is all about cherries and my favorite way to showcase the beauty of these little red jewels is to make a cake studded with plump cherries! It's not only eye appealing but also very tasty.
This recipe,and i'm talking about this yogurt cake,is one of those cake recipes that you should have in your repertoire and put on repeat all summer long because is adaptable and you can use whatever fruit you like.
The cake is moist,perfectly sweet and pairs wonderfully with sweet-tart cherries plus the recipe comes together in less than an hour,start to finish!!
