How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Generously butter a 10" springform pan, and set aside (see note).
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, or with a hand beater, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Lower the speed and add the eggs, one at a time, beating until fully incorporated. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, vanilla extract and lemon zest.
  • In another bowl, sift together the almonds, flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Add half the flour to the butter mixture, beating until blended. Add the sour cream mixture, beating again and scraping down the sides of the bowl. Finish with the remaining flour and stir until just combined.
  • Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan. Sprinkle over the cut cherries, the almonds and the Demerara sugar (if using). Bake for approximately 40 minutes, or until lightly golden and a cake tester comes out clean.
