About this recipe: A good old-fashioned plain cake that has chopped red glace cherries added. I like to sprinkle some flaked almonds on top but no need to ice. Lovely with a cuppa and lasts a week in an airtight tin.
This cherry cake turned out ok but I used marge instead of butter and found that 200g was too much I think maybe 150g might of been better will try next time and for some reason my cherries always drop to the bottom. I also did not put any salt in not sure if that matters or not. On the whole the family loved it. I sprinkled the almonds on the top which was really nice. Also I have a fan assisted oven so cooked it at 160 degrees and only for around 50 mins. - 09 Jun 2012
