Frozen cherries become juicy and intense when baked into this tender cake. Frozen berries are a great way to savor summer fruit in the fall. Try this cake with blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, or a combination thereof.

Warm Almond-Cherry Cake

Source: Everyday Food, October 2007


  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for pie plate
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled), plus more for pie plate
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 1 bag (12 ounces) frozen cherries, thawed and dried
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate (4-cup capacity); set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

  2. Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in almond extract. With mixer on low, blend in flour mixture (do not overmix).

  3. Transfer batter to prepared pie plate; scatter cherries and almonds on top. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.

    I've made this twice and loved it both times. Second time I used cranberries instead of cherries as they were easier to find at the store. Results still delicious.
