  • About

Almonds have been imported by the British since medieval times and have long been a common addition to cake recipes. Here, ground almonds and almond extract impart a bold flavor to this rich, moist, nutty teatime favorite. In late spring, when cherries are in season, add them to the table to echo the kirsch in the hot syrup used to infuse the warm cake.
