This Cherry Almond Cake is a true delight. A lovely buttermilk cake with almond and vanilla flavours and a layer of luscious cherries is topped with a crunchy almond streusel topping and a sweet almond glaze. The flavours, textures and colours combine perfectly here for a very special cake.

And while fresh cherries are ideal, if you don’t have them on hand, I have used frozen cherries with great success.

Perfect for afternoon tea. Or morning tea. Or brunch. Or anytime really. I’ll go put the kettle on shall I?
