I do love cake but it’s been a while since I posted one here on Ciao Chow Linda. I’ve been feasting on summertime fruits and (sh!) an occasional ice cream when I’ve had the urge for something sweet. But after picking up a package of frozen cherries at Trader Joe’s and simultaneously noticing a post from Stacey Snacks on a cake using frozen cherries, I knew I had to make this recipe.
8 tbsp butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp almond extract
1/4 cup sour cream
1 cup flour
1/4 cup almond meal
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
12 oz. bag of defrosted frozen cherries (pat them dry)
sliced almonds for the top
sugar for the top
Cream the butter with the sugar, eggs, extract and sour cream.
Add in the flour, baking powder, salt & almond meal.
The mixture will be nice and fluffy and yellow.
Pour into a buttered 9″ pie dish (I used a springform pan) and dot the top with the defrosted cherries. almonds and a tablespoon of sugar for the top.
Bake 40-45 minutes at 350F.
