So I’ve been away from this blog for ages! But what better recipe to return with than a gorgeous cherry and chocolate marble cake? The beauty of this recipe is that you get the best of both worlds: a moist cherry and almond cake AND a rich chocolate cake, swirled together and topped with crunchy flaked almonds. The key to the marble in the cake is actually not to swirl the mixture too much. Stick to alternating the flavours as you go through the mixture, then just do a light wiggle with the end of a fork when you’ve spooned it all in and the marble should be perfect!
It’s also a great cake to make now that English cherries are in season, they help to keep it so moist, along with the ground almonds. I made it for my Dad on Father’s Day, and it makes a perfect afternoon treat with a cup of tea.
