I love food, I love cooking, I love baking!!! There is just something about the smell of freshly baking cookies and cake that seems to call to me every time. It is almost an obsessive need to flow with that scent that lingers in the air and just have it all around you all the time. Baking was something I had grown up around and pretty much forgotten about since awhile. I have had my mum experiment with so many different cakes and dishes which made me want to try some for myself.
1.Heat oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3. Line the base and sides of a 20cm deep
cake tin. Beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then beat
in the eggs, one by one. Fold in the almond extract, flour, ground almonds and
baking powder, followed by the cherries and milk.
2.Scrape into the prepared tin, scatter over the flaked almonds, then bake
for 1 hr-1 hr 15 mins. Cool the cake in its tin before serving.
