Dear Friends,

It’s been a while since I last shared a recipe with you so it’s time for me to do that. This time I’m sharing with you how to make a super soft and fluffy, sour cherry sponge cake. It’s the ultimate summer dessert. Check out the video on Youtube too!

The recipe is easy-to-follow and always works. You could switch up the fruits or add in some chocolate chips too. It’s really up to your imagination. 🙂


What you need

3 large eggs

100 ml water

80 ml sunflower seed oil

150 g sugar

250 g flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 pinch of salt

300 g fresh or frozen sour cherries without seeds


What you do

  1. Use two, separate mixing bowls and separate the egg whites from the yolks.
  2. Beat the egg whites until they stiffen and form little peaks in the bowl. _MG_5377
  3. Mix together the egg yolks with the sugar, water, and oil until foamy.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt until combined.
  5. Slowly add the flour mixture to the egg yolk, sugar, oil mixture and with the help of a spatula make folding motions til the flour dissolves completely. _MG_5374
  6. Then, add the egg whites and with even gentler motions, fold it all into the mixture.
  7. Pour the batter into a Yama paper baking form and decorate the top with the sour cherries. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for about 30 mins or until a toothpick comes out clean from the middle and the top is golden brown. When it’s cooled, decorate with some icing sugar and enjoy! _MG_5385_MG_5391
