- Cuisine: French
- Serves 8
You need a well-buttered and floured 22cm lift-out cake tin.
Ingredients150g butter, cut into small pieces
150g caster sugar
Zest of 1 lemon, finely grated
150g self-raising flour
50g almond meal
80g skinned, roasted hazelnuts, crushed into 2-3 pieces
30 large cherries, pitted
2 tbsp caster sugar, for dusting
2 tbsp smooth apricot jam
PreparationPreheat the oven to 180°C.
Using an electric beater, cream the butter, sugar and lemon zest for a few minutes.
Add 1 egg at a time and beat well. Then on low speed carefully add the self-raising flour, almond meal and roasted hazelnut pieces, beating until just mixed.
Carefully pour the mixture into the prepared tin and flatten the top. Top with the pitted cherries, keeping them about 1cm away from the sides of the tin and pressing them about ½cm down into the mixture. Dust the top with the extra caster sugar.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 50 minutes until the cake is cooked.
Remove the cake from the oven and rest it for 15 minutes before carefully turning it out. Brush the top of the cake with the reheated jam and allow the cake to cool before serving.
It's nice served with cream or ice-cream.
