The chocolate cherry bomb cake is a delicious dessert that combines the strong taste of milk chocolate with the sour taste of cherries.
In this recipe for baking powder, I used “PANEANGELI“, widely used in Italy, and I must say that it is my favorite, I usually do not use the yeast to make sponge cake, because I beat the eggs to form a frothy and air-filled compound.
♫︎♫︎ Hello, daddy. Hello, mom.
I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!
Hello world! I’m your wild girl.
I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!… ♫︎♫︎
Do you remember this song sung by The Runaways? I like listening to the radio while I prepare something in the kitchen.
Today my daughter wanted a cherry cake, my husband had bought cherries, so I thought of making a chocolate cherry cake.
When I enter the kitchen, I enter into my kingdom, first I prepare all the utensils I need, out of my special baking drawer, I take out my very precise balance scale, and then the ingredients.
I turn on the radio, tune it into a channel where I can hear beautiful music, and start composing my little creations.
The music relaxes me then if you start hearing the songs of the past especially those songs that have remained in your heart and that bind you to distant memories. Well, what can I say I’m happy!
