How To Make Home-made Cherry And Almond Cake

How To Make Home-made Cherry And Almond Cake. Hello friends. Happy Sunday.

I woke up so early today. Did my run with Mollie the Collie and now I am watching the London Marathon and dreaming of baking cakes!! As you do!?

So today I am sharing this Home-made Cherry And Almond Cake. How yummy! I also love cakes with cherries in them. Cherries scones are also one of my favourites.

Cherries and almonds were made to go together and by using cocktail cherries you add real depth to the almondy taste with the added maraschino flavour.
