Cherry Almond Bundt Cake

Cherry Almond Bundt Cake

The flavors of cherry and almonds have always been complimentary. This cake recipe from the book, Around our Table, really embraces the two flavors and highlights them both.

I love how they use almond paste and almonds along with fresh cherries. All of these ingredients also work together to make this a super moist cake.

The one tip that wasn’t in the recipe is to toss your cherries, lightly, in flour. This will keep them from all sinking to the bottom of the cake.

Oh and it is a great Cake for Breakfast!

Cherry Almond Bundt Cake

This cake is from Around our Table, by Sara Forte. I am obsessed with how good this cake is. I love the way the almond and sherry flavors work together. It is very moist so store in fridge.
