Cake with chocolate and sour cherries – Method of preparation

It starts with the preparation of the top of the cake with cocoa, which, in order to be cut to perfection, is ideal for preparing the day before.

We start by separating the white from the yellow. Sprinkle salt over the egg whites and stir until foamy and crystallized. We gradually add sugar and mix until we get a strong meringue. Add egg yolks mixed with melted butter, essence, then sifted flour along with cocoa. We spread the composition for the top of the cake in a form that is greased with a little butter. Bake the cake for 45 minutes at 170 degrees, in the preheated oven. Then we let it harden and turn it over on a cooling rack.

Meanwhile, prepare the syrup by boiling water with sugar and adding essence after turning off the heat and cooling the syrup.

How to make chocolate cream

For the cream, we used the classic chocolate ganache recipe.

Heat the cream, then add the chocolate and butter to it. Turn off the heat and mix the chocolate with the heated cream until it melts and we get a homogeneous composition. We set aside 1/3 of the composition to use for the glaze. Let the remaining chocolate cream cool well, then put a mixer in it and cream it by adding mascarpone, essence and a pinch of salt.

How to assemble a delicious cherry chocolate cake from sour cherries

Cut the top of the cooled cake into three pieces. We slightly syrup each piece from the top. We put the first part from the top on a plate and sprinkle half the amount of cherries on top, then spread half of the chocolate ganache cream. The second top follows and we repeat the process. Then we put the third top. Heat the chocolate frosting in a bain marie and spread it over the cake, letting it flow down the sides too.

We can decorate the cake with fresh fruit, nuts, almonds or cherries. Vlăduț decorated it with roses.
