CHERRY CAKE

INGREDIENTS

160 g melted butter

180 g (1 ½ cups) plain flour

120 g (1 cup) almond flour

130 g raw caster sugar (2/3 cup)

3 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp baking powder

Pinch sea salt

300 g fresh pitted or frozen cherries

50 g flaked almonds (1/3 cup)

2 tbsp. brown sugar

 

METHOD

1.        Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and grease a 9inch 23cm spring form tin.

2.       Combine the melted butter, almond flour and sugar until well incorporated.  Add in your eggs one at a time until well combined.

3.       Add in your sifted plain flour and baking powder and add the salt.  Mix to combine.  Add the cherries and with a soft touch gently fold              them through the batter.  Scrape the mixture into your tin and bake for 30 minutes.

4.       Remove from the oven, scatter with flaked almonds and brown sugar and cook for a further 10 minutes.

5.       Leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before removing and placing on a wire rack.

6.       Serve with vanilla ice cream or cream for extra indulgence.

 

NOTE:  I used fresh cherries for this cake which I pitted myself.  I have made this cake many times using frozen cherries which saves a lot of time and the results are still sensational.  For an added flavour hit, you could even try cooking your fresh cherries slightly in a liqure before adding them to teh cake batter.
