Life is just a bowl of cherries

It turns out that Mr C is a bit of a fan of cherry cake, so I added it to my baking list and this week that was the recipe that popped up. It’s a good ol’ Delia Smith recipe, but I must admit to being a little concerned at the idea of putting a cake in an oven for an hour and a half.

It’s a reasonably low heat, and after a while you’re meant to put a little foil hat on to stop it burning on top. I think I left it a bit too long.

It was absolutely delicious, but the edges were far too crispy. We mostly ate the middle and left the edges as smiley little crescents on the plate.

I’m definitely going to try cherry cake again, but I’m not sure if I’ll use the same recipe. I know I needed it to be a bit fluffier before adding the cherries and suchlike, but mine definitely doesn’t look like Delia’s!
