Sour cherry cake

I´ve already shared this recipe with you on my Romanian blog, but since not all of you read Romanian and not all of you follow it, I thought I should post it here, too. 😉

A couple of days ago I picked a bowl of sour cherries straight from the tree and I felt like baking a cake, the type of summer cake that my childhood was filled of.

  • 3 eggs
  • 2 ½ dl  sugar
  • 1 tea spoon vanilla sugar
  • 2 dl  flour
  • 100 g  butter
  • a bowl of sour cherries


Wash the sour cherries and remove the pits. Put a greaseproof sheet at the bottom of the pie form and cut it so that it suits the form. Whip the sugar and the eggs until they look like a meringue. Add the sifted flour and vanilla sugar. Add the melted butter. Pour the cake in the form and put it in the oven for 20 min. at 175 degrees C.

Take out the cake, add the sour cherries and put it back for 30 more min. Check to see if done, then let it cool down for 10 minutes. Serve with coffee and ice-cream! 😉

    1. Thank you! 😉 I know what you mean, I used to feel they were just “cheap” surrogates for “real” cakes (chocolate cakes or cakes with frosting) during my childhood. I even remember making an ass of myself ’cause mom made plum cake one day. Haha! But the older I get, the more I like to use seasonable produce, preferably picked up by my own hands. 😉 The more it reminds me of my childhood, the more I appreciate it. 😉

    1. Am descoperit pana la urma ca erau cirese, nu visine. Sunt copaci plantati ici si colo, in zone accesibile publicului, in Gamlebyen, de ex., avem vreo 10. 😉
