Cherry Frangipane Tart #LoveFreshCherries

We are well into British cherry season and BritMums have challenged bloggers to share how they enjoy cherries. My boys love cherries just as they are. Little man always wants to plant the stones to grow a cherry tree of his own!

I remember as a child being extremely excited when I found two cherries joined, so I could make them into earrings. Who needs iPads and Kindles when you have a punnet of cherries!

Cherries and cake go together like fish and chips. My black forest meringue cake is the perfect show stopper at a party.

For me, I love the cherry and almond combination that is reminiscent of a Bakewell tart. If you love flamingos then my cherry and almond flamingo cupcakes are worth checking out.

With the boys off school, they are currently eating me out of house and home. I therefore decided that I would bake them a cherry frangipane tart. Middle man thanked me for this! It is nice and simple to make and if you like cherries and almond then it is a winner.
