Fresh Cherry Almond Cake

Mr. Cakes senior (Dad of Mr. Cakes) absolutely loves a Cherry & Almond cake. You know the kind I mean – usually in a loaf, studded with bright red waxy glacé cherries. But I must confess, those super sweet, syrupy candied cherries just don’t agree with my delicate palette.

Fresh cherries, on the other hand, well – I can’t get enough of them. You have to be quick if you want to get your mitts on British cherries, they’re not in season for very long.

So when your cherry loving pops-in-law pops over for tea, and it’s cherry season I’d highly recommend making Hugh’s Fresh Cherry Cake with Streusel Topping, another Fearnley-Whittingstall masterpiece.
