Cherry Cake w/ Ginger Lime Pecan Crumb Topping!

I have been dreaming of this cake for one year.

We spent a few days last summer at the home of a baker in the Hamptons, and she served us this cake.

It was one of the best cherry cakes I had ever had.
The topping was scrumptious and I couldn't wait till cherry season so I could bake this cake for you and me.

Well, the time is now.

Cherries are here, and I love them.
Possibly the only fruit I like enough to eat on their own (I will take vegetables over fruit any day).

And let's talk about this streusel topping.
It's ridiculous.

The original recipe uses grated ginger, but I used candied, chopped ginger instead.
It sounds weird, the lime zest, pecans and ginger, but it all works, trust me.
I will be using this topping on other cakes.

The original recipe is from Bake from Scratch magazine, which is the BEST magazine subscription for the home baker.
You will never want to give or throw away an issue. Worth its price.

Go get some cherries and bake this cake!!!
