  9. Hi

    Is there by substitute for almond meal? The cake looks yummy and I don't want to miss this joy of baking of a cherry cake :)

  10. This looks delicious and the perfect dessert for a lunch party. I see that in the recipe it allows for an optional almond extract ingredient. Have you tried the recipe with or without the almond extract? I am wondering if it makes the cake taste different. Thanks for posting the recipe.
