Milo’s colleagues from Norway were down sometime last week, and we baked this cake for them. They enjoyed it with a cup of black coffee. Photo courtesy Oddlaug 🙂
This is Neeta Mehta’s recipe attempted by us.
1 cup All Purpose Flour/Maida,
1 tsp Baking powder,
1/2 cup Glazed Cherries cut into round slices,
1/2 cup Almonds chopped,
3/4th cup powdered sugar,
1/2 cup oil (vegetable/sunflower or any oil that does not smell),
1/2 tsp Almond essence (I used mixed fruit essence)
Sift together flour and baking powder and keep aside.
Beat together powdered sugar and eggs till frothy.
Add oil and beat it for a while.
Add the flour to the egg batter and mix well.
Add the essence, chopped cherries and almond and mix well again.Keep a few cherries and almond to put on top of the cake batter. The cake batter for this cake is quite thick.
Pour into a greased tin and bake in a preheated oven (175 degree centigrade) till a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
If the top is browning too quickly,loosely cover the top with a foil.
Remove from oven,let it cool for 10 minutes and then remove to a wire rack.
Slice and serve.
