Cherry or Chocolate sponge cake


Hello Dears,
Look what a spongy, moist cake pieces I brought you today! :)

Sorry for not posting for a while, but if you work in hotel industry, you know weekends are on weekdays, and usually you get the two days separately, so I usually have a good sleep, do some household duties, watch some shows on TV, (of course recipe, food channels are the favorites of mine..) and the day is over... 
But don't worry, I didn't stop baking, just I am a bit late with posting these.

+ We are in another project besides the usual, we are looking for cute, small flats with my fiance. 
This will be our very first own property, so it's really exciting.
 (And tiring also, but it should be, right?)

Now let me introduce a bit this cake. It is a tricky cake, as I hided mashed peaches in the cake batter. :) It made it extra tasty, and soft. 
And even my boyfriend didn't recognize it, as he doesn't like any fruits in cakes. 
(That was the reason I made the cake half chocolaty, and the other half  with cherries, because I do love them in pastries, so everyone could enjoy the cake)

Ingredients:
  • 5 pieces of peaches
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp of vanilla sugar
  • 8 tbsp of sugar
  • 8 tbsp of flour
  • 1 tbsp of baking powder
  • 3 tbsp of oil
  • 1 tsp of lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp of raspberry syrup
  • a pinch of salt
  • ---
  • cherries
  • chocolate dragees

Preparation:

1. Wash the peaches well, peel them, cut them up, and mash them with a mixer.

2. Separate the egg-whites, mix them with vanilla sugar, and mix it until it becomes a nice egg foam.

3. Add the sugar to the yolks, mix them, then pour the oil, the lemon juice, and the raspberry syrup as well. Finally, spoon the flour with a pinch of salt, and with the baking powder to the pastry. Then stir the mashed peaches to the mixture. 

4. Gently stir the egg foam into the mixture with a spatula.

5. Lubricate a baking tray with margarine, sprinkle it with flour, and pour the mixture in it.

6. Preheat the oven to 180 degree Celsius.
7. Wash the cherries, push out their cores, and place the fruit and the chocolate dragees on the top.


8. Bake it for about 40 minutes.


You will love it, if you try, easy and really tasty!
