These delicious delights make an elegant accompaniment to a cup of tea. Add more fresh cherries when you’re packaging them up as a gift to inject a good splash of ruby-red colour.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
125g unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing
125g light brown soft sugar
50g caster sugar
2 large eggs
175g plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
pinch salt
125ml milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
200g fresh cherries, pitted and quartered
icing sugar, for dusting

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C and lightly butter a 12-hole mini bundt tin.
  2. Using a food processor with the beater attachment, beat the butter and sugars until the mixture is pale and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition until they’re well incorporated into the mixture.
  3. Into a clean bowl sift the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt, and stir to combine. Add half the flour mixture to the butter mixture in the food processor and beat. Add the milk and vanilla extract, continuing to beat, and then add the remaining flour mixture and beat until just combined – do not over-beat. Finally, fold in the cherries.
  4. Take your prepared 12-hole mini bundt tin and spoon the mixture into each bundt hole, until each hole is two-thirds full. Bake for 25 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre of one of the cakes comes out clean.
  5. Allow the cakes to fully cool in the tin, then turn them out onto a wire rack and dust with icing sugar. Store in a tin or an airtight container for up to 3 days.
