Cherry Pound Cake is nothing new here on My Easy Cooking, but previously I made one big loaf cake and had to share with neighbors and friends because we could not finish it. This time, I wanted to bake smaller cakes and add a bit of ground almonds for added deliciousness! The classic Cherry Clafoutis is perfect during the cherry picking season, but a glazed cherry is a totally different thing to deal with. Glazed cherries are mostly used in fruit cakes, cookies, fruit bars and even covered in chocolate, they are just perfect!
I added some ground almonds to the pound cakes and also topped the cakes with flakes almonds. I loved the coarser texture and the nutty taste with the sweet, sweet cherries.
- Replace the vanilla with the zest of a lemon for a refreshing difference.
- Replace the flakes almonds with a lemon and icing-sugar glaze.
