  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup almonds finely ground
  • 3 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup neutral oil sunflower or olive
  • 2 Limoneira lemons zest & juice
  • 1 cup unsweetened oat milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups fine sugar
  • 9 ounces cherries pitted


  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1 lemon zest & juice


  • Preheat the oven to 350 °F, and line a 9″ x 13″ cake pan with parchment paper.
  • Add the chia seeds to 4 tablespoons of water in a small bowl.
  • Set aside for now – it will gel as you prepare the rest.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, lemon zest, finely ground almonds, baking powder and salt. Whisk to sift together, blending well.
  • In a second bowl, beat the oil with the lemon juice, oat milk and vanilla extract.
  • Beat the sugar into the wet ingredients. Add the gelled chia seeds last.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet in three batches, mixing until well blended, but not over-beaten.
  • Pour into the prepared cake pan.
  • Drop the cherries into the batter, letting them fall into the cake all over the pan.
  • Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until a sharp knife inserted into the center comes out clean.


  • Mix the icing sugar, lemon zest & juice together.
  • Allow the cake to cool for 15 to 20 minutes, and then drizzle with glaze.
