Chocolate Cherry Bomb Cake

Chocolate Cherry Bomb Cake

The chocolate cherry bomb cake is a delicious dessert that combines milk chocolate's strong taste with the cherries' sour taste.

In this recipe for baking powder, I used “PANEANGELI, " which is widely used in Italy. I must say that it is my favorite. I usually do not use 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. Since my husband had bought cherries, I thought of making a chocolate cherry cake.

When I enter the kitchen, I enter 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.

Music relaxes me, especially when I hear songs from the past, especially those that have remained in my heart and that bind me to distant memories. Well, what can I say? I’m happy!
