Combine cherries, almonds and 70g flour in a bowl; mix until fruit is well coated.
In another bowl, combine remaining flour, baking powder and salt. Stir well to blend.

Add flour mixture to creamed mixture alternately with milk, starting and ending with flour mixture. Stir in floured fruits and nuts. Spread cake mixture into greased and floured tube cake tin.
