I love make loaf cakes like this one because they are simple to put together and always taste better the next day :)
In this cake I love the simple crunchy texture of the poppy seeds .
This recipe is really nice like a teatime treat or even served for breakfast.
We are in spring but still I don't see fresh cherries but all the time I use frozen cherries and they are amazing .
