Preparation : 30 minutes

Makes one 20 cm ring cake (I use muffin liner)

Ingredients :

125 gm unsalted butter
3/4 cup caster sugar
2 eggs , lightly beaten
1/2 tsp. vanilla essence
1 cup glace cherries, chopped (I use cranberry)
2 cups self-raising flour
1/2 cup milk

Method :

Prehat oven to 180'C. Brush a deep, 20 cm ring tin with melted butter or oil, line base with paper or grease paper. Using electric beaters, beat butter and sugar until light and creamy.
Add eggs gradually, beating after each addition. Add vanilla essence, beat until combined. Add cherries. Using spatula, fold in sifted flour alternately with milk. Stir until just combined and mixture is almost smooth.
