Add fruit mixture and use a wooden spoon to mix well.

Sift over combined flours and stir until combined.

Tap the pan on the benchtop to settle mixture and smooth the surface.

Arrange the extra cherries and almonds over the surface in a flower pattern.

Bake in oven for 2 hours or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Remove cake from oven.
