Recently I purchased a new savarin cake tin obviously the only thing on my mind was to bake myself a cherry cake as soon as possible in the style of Mary Berry on Bake Off.
I thought this was a perfect opportunity to try out @isabelsfreefrom sponge cake mix. I bought the mix at the Allergy and Free From show in London All I needed to add was cherries, butter and sugar ( I used a small amount of dextrose ) You can use a dairy free spread if you have a dairy intolerance.
The instructions were simple and the sponge and added cherries were soon in the savarin tin ready for the oven.
The mix had a strong vanilla smell when I opened the packet and I did wonder whether the family would like this in the cake. It definitely was a love, hate thing. Some really liked the vanilla flavour while others only tried a small slice commenting on the taste.
I thought the cake had a nice light texture and was very delicious. A real treat ,I found this cherry cake quite sweet as I never normally have icing sugar.
I was pleased with the results of the icing, I think I will make a similar cake at Christmas at it was a lovely centre piece.
