This cake came about when I had a good rummage through the baking shelf of my larder. I found some ground almonds and some glace cherries , left over from making my Christmas pud.
The result a cherry cake with not many cherries, that still tasted yummy!

Glace cherries- as many as you can lay your hands on! Preferably 5oz, I had only 2oz
