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.

I ended up here browsing Expo Milan site, I thought your blog was good. 😉
Very nice recipe. Added some cinnamon. So simple and surprisingly so, so, so good!
Loved it. Very easy. Added more cherries than recipe called for.
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.
Write more, thats all I have to say.
