One of the highlights of summer is baking with all the gorgeous fruit, and cherries are definitely at the top of the list! The hardest part when it comes to baking with cherries is not devouring them all first, but I promise these recipes are worth it!
While there are options galore this season, these are the cherry desserts I go back to time and again!
Before the flour starts flying, I want to remind you that this is the last day to get our Christmas in July special!! The Baking Spirits Bright Cookie Box has been beyond popular, and I’m so happy you guys are as excited about the holidays as we are!
Back to the season at hand!
I’m going to start with Vanilla Bean Roasted Cherries. This is by far one of the simplest recipes to prepare, and the flavor you get from roasting the cherries with vanilla beans in absolutely incredible.
These roasted cherries are the base for our 2 next desserts, but are fantastic on their own, over ice cream, yogurt, and even pancakes! My biggest tip is to make a double batch because they are that good! I always make one for the dessert and one for me to snack on!
Once you have your roasted cherries, you’re definitely going to want to make these Black Forest Cupcakes! My go-to chocolate cupcake, topped with a lush mascarpone whipped frosting, roasted cherries, toasted almonds, and chocolate shavings, because why stop now!! There’s a video for this one too, so we can bake together!
Last up is the no-bake chocolate cherry cheesecakes. These little gems are like a decadent chocolate trifle meets cheesecake meets Black Forest cake! They are decadent, and great for entertaining, even if you’re entertaining yourself!
Hope you give one, or all of these a try!
Thanks again for the incredible response to our first annual Christmas in July!
