After a long break I’ve found few moments to get close to my computer and try to put down few thoughts and a recipe I have been owing you for a while now. It is such a great feeling. Oh, how much I missed it! I missed you, my dear readers, I missed my blog, I missed writing, I missed my camera even if I must confess that the last nine months were full of magic marked by a long wait full of questions, fears, emotions, optimism, dreams and plans. A long wait which culminated with the births of Nicole, the miracle that changed our lives.
I do not know when the time allows me to go back to my old habits no matter how much I want this; for the moment I am trying to get used to my new life and to enjoy every single moment spent with my daughter. This doesn’t mean that I will not write again. It’s only that my presence in the virtual world will be somehow conditioned by her. However, the good part is that in the future, the blog will have a new rubric with food for kids when the time comes.
Until then I beg you to bear with me and to apologize my absence. Now let’s enjoy a cake with cherries and cheese.
- 4 eggs
- 200g sugar
- 200g flour
- 4tbs boiled water
- 500g fresh cheese (cottage cheese)
- 1ts vanilla extract
- butter ( to grease the baking tin)
- 300g pitted cherries
- a pinch of salt
- almond flakes
- Preheat the oven to 170°C
- Beat yolks with sugar and salt until white and creamy
- Add 4 tablespoons of boiling water and mix well; add the flour a little at a time and mix until smooth and well combined
- Beat the egg whites with 2-3 tablespoons sugar until stiff and fold them into the batter
- Mix the cheese with vanilla extract and pour over half of the batter
- Grease the baking tin with butter; pour the cheese composition into the baking tin making sure that the base of the tin is fairly evenly covered.
- Pour the remaining batter over
- Add the cherries and the almond flakes
Bake for 50′ in the hot oven until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
Turn out onto a cooling rack and let it cool.
Sprinkle some confectioners’ sugar on top
Serve cold but warm is delicious as well.
You can use sour cherries instead of cherries.
Enjoy every bite of it !
Hugs and kisses!
