Cherry Cake


I love going to the market and finding something I wasn’t intending on buying. This week, I just couldn’t resist buying these delicious Cherries. They taste juicy and sweet. Ideal for any dessert (ice cream like yesterday) or a simple and sweet cake for today. Nothing extravagant, but something we like to enjoy with a good tea or coffee on the side.

Serves: 8/10 slices


  • 300g of all purpose flour/plain flour
  • 180g of caster sugar
  • 150g of butter (cut into small pieces)
  • 5g of baking powder
  • 400g of pitted cherries
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 100ml of milk
  • Roasted sliced almonds
  • Icing sugar (for dusting)
  • Apricot marmalade


  1. Grease a round pan cake(23 centimeters).
  2. Preheat the oven to 180C degrees.
  3. In a large bowl beat the sugar and the soft butter with an electric mixer until it becomes light and creamy.
  4. Add the 4 eggs, one by one and mix.
  5. Pour the milk and mix.
  6. Pour the flour and the baking powder, mix until smooth.
  7. Slowly pour the 1/2 of the mixture into the pan cake.
  8. Add the cherries and cover with the rest of the mixture.
  9. Bake for 45 minutes (more or less depending on the oven) or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  10. Remove from the oven and set aside for 20 minutes.
  11. Place the cake on a serving plate.
  12. Warm the apricot marmalade in a saucepan over low heat.
  13. Brush the top of the cake with apricot marmalade.
  14. Sprinkle the cake with roasted sliced almonds and dust it with some icing sugar.

Enjoy with an aromatic Ceylan tea on the side.

Bonne dégustation!
