Cherry pie or... cake...

I love cherries! I remember when I used to pick them as a child, fresh from the tree. My Granny would make jams, starch jelly, pies, muffins... Beautiful childhood memories. I can still smell boiling cherries with sugar for jam or marmalade :] I was lucky today and bought a big jar of cherries (already without the stones!). Fresh cherries are crazy expensive here... I was thinking how to use them, carefully and make them last a little longer. Is there a better idea then a pie/cake?!? No. Not for me anyway ;) I'm not sure if it's more of a pie or a cake - better decide yourself.

How to make it...

- 750 g cherries, stones removed
- 250 g unsalted butter
- 1 cup caster sugar
- 3/4 cup potato flour
- 5 tablespoon plain flour
- 3 tablespoons baking powder
- 4 eggs
- some almond flakes

Mix the butter and the sugar till nice and 'fluffy'. Add whole eggs mixing constantly. Add baking powder and both flours. Mix again. Pour the batter into a baking tray. Lay the cherries. Bake in preheated oven in 180 C for about 35 minutes. 10 minutes before taking the cake out of the oven sprinkle it with some almond flakes and finish baking.
