- Step 1
Preheat oven to 180°C. Brush a baking tray with olive oil to lightly grease.
- Step 2
Whisk together the eggs and sugar in a bowl until thick and pale. Add the flour, almonds, cherries, lemon rind, aniseed seeds and baking powder and stir until combined. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth.
- Step 3
Shape dough into a log about 30cm long and place on the prepared tray. Use your hands to flatten slightly. Bake in oven for 30 minutes or until cooked through. Set aside for 1 hour to cool.
- Step 4
Reduce oven temperature to 160°C. Brush 2 baking trays with olive oil to grease. Cut the log diagonally into 1cm-thick slices. Place, in a single layer, on the prepared trays. Bake, turning slices and swapping trays halfway through cooking, for 20 minutes or until golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
