Cherry Cake

Preparation time
Cooking time




Break the eggs into a large bowl and tip in the sugar. With an electric mixer on maximum speed, whisk the eggs and sugar for at least 8 minutes until they look pale and creamy: it will have dubled in volume.


Add the melted butter, vanilla and salt. Sprinkle the flower and the baking soda over the egg mixture, stirring with a spatula until you get rid of any lumps. At the end add the lemon zest and the maraschino liqueur.


Pour the mixture into a lined or greased ovenproof tin. Lay the cherries on top. Preheat oven to 180°C/350F/ Gas 6. Bake for 40 minutes, or until a cake taster inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool and sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar.

  1. This is a wonderfully tasty recipe. I had no cherries the day I made these and threw in strawberries. Added a half cup of sliced almonds and topped with sugar, cinnamon, brushed with butter and topped with a few more sliced almonds. My family loved.
