Nutritional values

This fruity marble loaf cake has significantly less fat and calories than the classic version and doesn't contain any refined sugar.

If you use sour cherries from a jar, make sure to drain them in a sieve before adding them to the cake mixture, as excess liquid will make this cake too moist. Frozen cherries, drained, are a great alternative too.
