Add the almond extract and then fold in the flour, baking powder and ground almonds, a little at first then, gradually, the rest.

Gently stir in the cherries and milk. Then turn the mixture into a lined 8 inch / 20cm round loose bottom cake tin. Sprinkle the polenta on top.

Bake in a pre heated oven at 160/140/Gas 3 for about 75 minutes. Cool in the tin. Eat.
