Carrot-Cherry Cake

I got this recipe from one member in Cookpad UK: Aunti Eiko’s dark cherry and carrot cake. I baked this yummy cake and, especially with those gorgeous red cherries turned into a tasty cake.

Divide the cake mixture between the two cake tins and bake for about 50 minutes. Remove the cake from the tins, pour maple syrup over the surface of cake and leave until completely cold. I had a touch of Mascarpone cheese top of the cake as well.
