About this recipe: When cherries are in season we always invent so many different ways to use them up. This cherry crumb traybake was a cake we created last year with the cherry bounty from our garden.

  • 200g soft brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 200g self raising flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 tablespoons Greek yoghurt

  2. For the cake:
