Cake "Drunken Cherry". Step-by-step recipe

  1. The very name of the cake says that the cherry must be "intoxicated". To do this, remove the bones from the frozen berries and fill the berries with alcohol: for example, cognac, wine or vodka. We close the cherry with a lid and leave it to absorb the berries.
  2. Council. For the cake "Drunken Cherry" you can also use canned cherries.
  3. Prepare a baking dish. I take a detachable, diameter of 20-24 centimeters. I cover the bottom with parchment.
  4. Separate the protein from the yolk (in different dishes). Whisk egg whites together with a pinch of salt: until a thick, thick foam forms.
  5. In a separate bowl we beat the yolks: they should become light and increase in volume.
  6. To the yolks, add half of the sugar. And the other half - to the proteins. And we continue to whisk separately yolks and separately proteins - until the formation of stable peaks.
  7. To the whipped proteins send the yolks and gently, with a silicone spatula or spoon, knead in circular motions from the top down: so that the foam does not settle.
