Preparation of biscuit

First you need to prepare a cherry for this cake. Cherry, as the name implies, must turn out to be drunk. It is in this "drunken" state that she will go to the cake. Therefore, we will wash and remove all the cherries and remove the bones from the berries. Transfer the cherry into a saucepan or a saucepan and add sugar to it. Then we pour cognac into it and leave our berries "to reach the condition". For this they need at least eight hours. By the way, with the same success instead of cognac you can use red wine, brandy or vodka. In order to bake the cake, use the well-known recipe for biscuit "chocolate on boiling water." Strictly speaking, for this cake you can bake any sponge cake: on sour cream, on oil, on soda. But try this option - on boiling water. The dough turns out very, very chocolate, and the cake is dense enough to be cut. Why - learn a little further. So, prepare a chocolate biscuit for our cake. Form for baking is prepared in advance: smear with cream or vegetable oil and sprinkle with flour. The oven is also included in advance, since the biscuit form should be placed in the already heated oven. And we will need a steep boiling water for the dough. So we also boil the kettle in advance. Then mix in a large bowl all the dry ingredients for the dough: flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder and soda. In another container, lightly beat eggs and pour milk and vegetable oil. After this, pour the egg-milk mixture into a bowl with our dry mixture. And we dilute it with a glass of steep boiling water. Do not be afraid: the dough does not boil, if it mix well at the same time. Too the liquid consistency of the dough, let it not frighten you: it's normal, it should be so. Pour the dough into a mold and send it to a well-heated oven. We bake a biscuit for about forty minutes, before sampling for a dry toothpick. You do not know how to do this test? We explain. Slightly open the oven, push in the shape with biscuit and stuck into it (on top of the cake) a wooden toothpick. Slightly rotate the toothpick around its axis (as if you are spinning a whirligig) and take out the toothpick. See: if it is not attached to it wet and crumbled crumbs of biscuit, it is ready. If this is observed, then we let the biscuit still sit in the oven. Ready biscuit we take out of the mold, we cool and prepare for the filling of the filling. To do this, cut the thin top layer of the cake (about a centimeter) and put this part aside. From the rest of the biscuit take out the middle, doing something like an empty round box. The bottom and sides of our box should be at least two centimeters thick. We cut out the biscuit part into small cubes. cake drunk cherry

Cooking cream

Softened butter, whisk togethercondensed milk, gradually pouring the milk into the oil. Then add to the cream a tablespoon of cognac from cherry and vanillin. Once again, whisk. In the ready (whipped) cream, we spread our drunken cherry, which we previously remove from the alcohol solution and discard the colander. And in the end we will mix the cream with the chopped cubes of chocolate biscuit. After that, lay out the filling in our biscuit box and cover everything cut off at the very beginning of the "lid". Top with chocolate covered icing cake. To make the glaze, we break the chocolate bars into pieces, put the chocolate in the saucepan and add the milk to it. Let's warm up the chocolate with milk over low heat and with the liquid chocolate we will cover the whole cake. We smooth the glaze with a knife. We will decorate the cake with cherries, boneless in powdered sugar, chocolate chips, pieces of black or white chocolate. Everything, the cake is ready. Take off the sample. And even better, invite for such a pleasant tasting suitable company of those who love cherries, chocolate and strong drinks (in moderation). But he who loves you (without cherries and without chocolate) will not be superfluous either. Enjoy your meal! We advise you to read:
