Brown Sugar Cherry Cakes

Serving Size:Makes 12 cakes


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for muffin tin
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup packed light brown sugar, plus 2 Tablespoons for toppin

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 60 (about 11 ounces) Bing Cherries, pitted
  • Brennan's Vanilla Ice Cream or whipped cream, for serving (optional)



These yummy cakes are best served warm and ice cream is a must!


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Butter a 12-cup standard nonstick muffin tin. 

In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside. With an electric mixer, cream butter and 2/3 cup brown sugar until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Add eggs, one at a time; beat until combined. Beat in buttermilk and vanilla, then flour mixture. Spoon batter into prepared tin, filling cups about 1/3 full. Place 5 cherries on top of each; sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons sugar. 

Bake until cakes are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes in tin. Run a knife around edges; turn out of pan, cherry sides up. Serve warm, with ice cream, if desired.
