Sweet Summer

Ever since I read this post on my aunt's blog the other day, I've been daydreaming about Aunt Bea's Tarta. My aunt made one when she visited with Camden and I back in 2004, and she used fresh peaches. The boys and I visited a local cherry orchard yesterday afternoon, so I thought I would give it a try using fresh cherries, along with a sprinkling of fresh blueberries that we'd purchased there as well.

I halved the recipe, using two 9x5 loaf pans to bake the cake in, and it worked just fine. It tastes delicious with cherries, and now I'm thinking this may be a potential entry in next year's cherry bake-off...

Oh, mercy, does that look delicious with the cherries and the blueberries, Heather. I think you've got a hit on your hands. Nicely done!

That looks delicious! I might have to make that- perfect summer dessert. I also loved your cheese grater that you posted.
Sounds like you guys are having a great summer- cherry picking sounds like a blast too.
