Ingredients

170g olive oil

280g honey

350g coconut milk

4 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

520g all-purpose flour

2 heaped teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

50g coarsely chopped almonds

80g glacé cherries cut in half

 

For the lemon glaze: (optional)

120g icing sugar

15g fresh lemon juice

 

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C, fan assisted.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add the olive oil, honey, coconut milk, eggs, vanilla, flour, salt and beat for 1-2 minutes until the mixture comes together. Finally, fold in the almonds and cherries using a spoon.
  3. Using a silicone spatula, transfer the mixture to the baking pan. Place it on the middle shelf of the oven and bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven, allow to cool completely. Remove from the baking pan. If you want to make the icing, in a bowl mix the icing sugar with the lemon juice until you have a thick but still pourable icing. Pour over the cooled cake and decorate with more chopped glacé cherries and almonds. Serve and enjoy!
