About this recipe: Soft, moist Madeira cake is lovingly infused with plump and sweet glacé cherries giving this classic sponge cake a lovely combination of flavours.
Avoid opening the oven door to check on the cake until at least 45 minutes is up, this will help to prevent the cake from sinking in the middle.
quarter the cherries and they shouldn't sink ;-) - 13 Sep 2015
The family made short work of this delicious cake. However, like most other reviewers found, the cherries (despite being quartered and floured) still sank to the bottom. - 05 Jun 2016
Quick and easy recipe. Just a shame the cherries went south :-) - 17 Feb 2015
