Cherry and Almond Cake

Recently, I was sent a lovely selection of products from Opies to review.  I looked on their website for recipes and came across this cherry and almond cake. It's a classic combination and one that I knew would be a crowd pleaser. It's a simple recipe but I managed to burn it as I didn't keep a close eye on my temperamental oven! Fortunately, the cake still tasted fine. It has a lovely texture and the juicy cherries in the middle are particularly delightful. The cocktail cherries would also be lovely in a cocktail!
