Cherry Cake

The Boys Do Bake Off - Series 5, Ep.1 - Cake Week

Series 5, aired in 2014, saw the show move from BBC Two to BBC One and a group of twelve brand new bakers enter the tent - Chetna Makan, Claire Goodwin, Diana Beard, Enwezor Nzegwu, Iain Watters, Jordan Cox, Kate Henry, Luis Troyano, Martha Collison, Nancy BirtwhistleNorman Calder, and Richard Burr.

The first technical, and our challenge for today, was to bake Mary Berry's Cherry Cake. This simple sponge cake mixture has ground almonds for a moist finish and a generous handful of glacé cherries.

Simply beat all your wet and dry ingredients together before adding rinsed, dried and floured cherry pieces then spoon into a prepared bundt or savarin mould. Bake until golden then cool and decorate with lemon water icing, toasted almonds and more cherries. 

Now, who's going to put the kettle on?...
