"Last year, my husband and I, had a hiking to the mountains near Tehran, Iran. An enjoying spring day which resulted buying a lot of cherries from the locals there! Amazing taste, you know... the cherries still had that woody almond-y greenish taste. Hmmmm, unbearable! Anyway, some of those cherries were still in my freezer. Then, this cake was born, progressed and finally determined successfully, using up all those lovely little ones. Hope you’ll give it a try and enjoy..."

  • Step 4/6

    Check the doneness by inserting a toothpick into the middle. If the cake hasn’t done yet but the top is reaching a desired golden brown color, reduce the oven temperature to 160 C and continue baking for 10-15 more min. The cake is done when the top is somehow darkly browned, due to chocolates and flax flour, and a bit crusty.

    Turn off the oven and put the cake at the very bottom of the hot oven for a quarter or so. Take the cake out of the oven and let cool enough to handle. Remove it from the pan and cool completely on a wire rack.
