Cherry and Marzipan Fruity Loaf
List of ingredients
For this recipe you can use Stork Packet or Stork Tub.
225g (8oz) plain flour
1½ teaspoons baking powder
175g (6oz) Stork tub
175g (6oz) caster sugar
3 medium eggs
55g (2oz) ground almonds
55g (2oz) flaked almonds
175g (6oz) glacé cherries, halved
115g (4oz) marzipan
How to prepare
Start by preheating your oven to 160°C, 325°F or gas mark 3.
Then sift the flour and baking powder into a large mixing bowl, add the other ingredients, except the marzipan, and beat together with a wooden spoon.
Dice half the marzipan and fold it in.
Grease and line the bottom of a 900g loaf tin and spoon in the mixture.
Pop it in the oven for 1 – 1 ¼ hours.
Turn the cake out to cool on a wire rack.
Roll out the remaining marzipan, cut into thin strips, twist and arrange in a fancy lattice pattern over the loaf.
Put it under the grill until lightly browned, then dig in.
