There are two home baked cake lovers in my family - my son and my husband, so there is always enough baking supplies in my pantry. Well I am not an expert and whatever baking knowledge I have, I have accumulated it over time. The process has been full of trials and errors.

Few days back I decided to bake this cherry almond cake with whatever ingredients was available at home. Hubby loved it and kept asking what was it made of? Well it was just my regular egg free cake recipe. I just added maraschino cherries and sliced almonds in it. I wish I had more cherries to decorate its top.
