-50 ml of vegetable oil

-200 g of dark chocolate

-150 g of sugar

– 6 egg whites

-150 g of ground walnuts


-350 g of cherries (fresh or frozen)

-200 g of sugar

-6 egg yolks

-700 g of 20% cream

– 10 g of gelatin


-125 ml of whipped cream

-125 g of dark chocolate

-1 or


1. In a saucepan, mix the cherries (pitted) with the sugar. Leave it at room temperature so that the cherries release juice. Place the saucepan on the heat and bring the mixture to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Stir periodically. Let the resulting mixture cool.

2. Prepare the tops: melt the chocolate in the warm (not hot) oil. Beat the egg whites with a mixer for about 1 minute. Add the sugar and mix until you get a foam with stable peaks. Carefully add the chocolate with oil, then the nuts. Mix with a spatula.

3. Line a baking dish (diameter 20 cm) with paper. Arrange the dough in the form and bake in the oven preheated to 200°C for 10 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 180°C and bake for another 30 minutes. Remove the sponge cake from the baking tin and let it cool. Cut it lengthwise in half.

4. Beat the yolks a little with 100 g of sugar. Put the resulting mixture in the steam bath and heat it for 7-8 minutes, until it thickens. Stir continuously. Leave to cool.

5. Pour 4 tablespoons of water into the bowl of gelatin and let it swell. Heat the gelatin so that it melts and turns into a homogeneous mixture. Do not boil the gelatin. Pour the resulting mixture into the yolks with sugar (slightly warm). Stir.

6. Add the cream (preventatively, mix it a little with a whisk).

7. Add the cherries with syrup to the obtained mixture. Mix well (you can use a mixer on medium speed). You get a fairly runny cream. Refrigerate for a few minutes.

8. Arrange the first top on a plate, then “dress” it with the ring from a removable baking form. Pour the filling and cover it with the second top. Refrigerate the cake for 12-24 hours so that the filling sets.

9. Place a small saucepan of cream on the heat. Add the chocolate (broken into pieces) and heat the mixture until the chocolate melts. Stir continuously. If lumps form, pass the glaze through a sieve. Beat the egg a little and add it to the bowl with the glaze. Heat the resulting mixture a little (take it off the heat before it thickens). Cover the cake with frosting. Decorate to taste. Leave the cake in the fridge until the frosting sets.
