Dave pitting cherries with a chopstick. Works great! Apricots are halved and placed on a mixture of creamed butter and sugar.

The batter has almond paste, cornmeal and some vanilla and almond extract (next time, I would drop the almond extract as there was a bit too much almond flavor). The eggs are separated and the whites are folded into the mix.

We cooked the cake using the "convection" feature of the new oven. We lowered the temp a bit and ended up cooking it around 70 minutes. It turned out nicely, but I don't know if it made a difference. I'd like to try cookies on convection next (hint, hint Dave!)

I would definitely bake this again! Baked cherries are so sweet and delicious.
Pin It!

It was fun being the Food Librarian's beautiful assistant for a day - cherry juice on my fingers and all. The cake tasted just a good the second day! Once I get myself a food thermometer, I will have to take my own stab at baking!
