Chocolate Cherry Cake

It is summer time! I love summer, sun and those long evenings outside with friends and great food. And when I think of summer food, I think of cherries. Aren't they the ultimate summer fruit? So fresh and juicy and they always taste best when eaten straight from the cherry tree.

You need:
100 grams fine grind almonds
100 grams chocolate
180 grams sugar
125 grams flour
2 table spoons baking powder
200 grams butter, melted
1 tea spoon vanilla
1 table spoon cinnamon
4 eggs
250 grams stoneless, fresh cherries

First, melt the chocolate in a double boiler and set aside. Combine eggs and sugar in a big mixing bowl and mix until fluffy. Add almonds, the melted chocolate, butter, cinnamon, flour and baking powder. Mix well until combined. Pour the batter in a lined cake pan. Arrange the cherries on top and bake for 25 minutes on 190°C.
