Ingredients
  • 2 handfuls cherries
  • 150g butter
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 225g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ tsp almond essence
Method
  1. Halve and stone the cherries and line a regular cake tin with greaseproof paper.
  2. Heat your oven to 160C/Gas 3.
  3. Melt the butter in a pan and set it aside to cool slightly.
  4. Combine the flour, caster sugar and baking powder in a bowl.
  5. Then beat 2 eggs and the almond essence together in another small bowl.
  6. Finally, combine the flour mix, butter and egg mix.
  7. Bring it together with a spatula to make quite a thick batter-like consistency and keep mixing until it is smooth.
  8. Then add ¾ of the mix to the cake tin and spread it out (you will think it seems like not very much but don’t worry).
  9. Then lay the cherries over the mix in an even layer and add the final ¼ of the mix to the centre of the cake on top of the cherries.
  10. Quickly pop it in the oven and bake for 50 mins.
