Eggs 4I started with 3 and then noticed I actually need the 4th one too
200gr0,44 pounds butter (I used 100 gr)
150gr0,33 pounds sugar (I used 75)
200gr0,44 pounds flour (I used 250 gr; way too much)
1kg2,2 pounds fresh cherries
1sachet baking powder
Almond flakes to ornate
Pre heat oven to 425 F
Remove the cherry pits.
Mix butter and sugar until you get a fluffy mixture.
Add vanilla sugar, eggs, salt and mix well.
Add flour and mix until fully incorporated
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
Pour half the mixture in.
Add a layer of cherries (you can cut them into halves)
Add the second half of the dough.
Add another layer of cherries. Press the dough a little using a tablespoon.
Transfer the baking sheet to the preheated oven and bake for about 20 min (insert a toothpick in the middle of the cake to check for doneness. If no dough sticks to the toothpick, the cherry pound cake is done)
Leave to cool and ornate with almond flakes and fresh cherries
