Cherry and Almond Cake
« on: August 10, 2021, 05:09:32 am »
Cherry and Almond Cake
1 1/4 cups SR flour
100g almonds- I used unblanched ones
2/3 cup sugar
3 eggs
3/4 cup oil
1 tablespoon grated orange rind
1/3-½ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1½ cups frozen cherries
Put the almonds into the bowl and blitz. Set aside. No need to wash the bowl. I left mine about the size of a pin head and it gave a slight crunch to the cake.
Halve the frozen cherries.
Preheat oven to160* and prepare a loaf tin. (24cm x 13cm x6cm)
Place butterfly into the bowl. Beat eggs, oil, sugar, orange rind and juice for about 1 minute or until thickened slightly. Not over speed 4.
Remove butterfly and add flour, almonds and fold through with a spatula.
Fold halved cherries through  and bake for about 1-1½ hours.

My photo isn't the best and doesn't do the cake justice. It is very nice.
I found this recipe in a pile I really must go through. I think it was from Creative Gourmet.

May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
