Snow White Cake – for a special occasion !

It was the middle of winter, and the snow-flakes were falling like feathers from the sky, and a queen sat at her window working, and her embroidery-frame was of ebony.

Snow White Cake Recipe

Sponge cake ingredients (all ingredients for 8 servings):
– 3 eggs
– 80g sugar
– 80g wheat flour
– 2 tbsp cocoa powder
– 1/2 teaspoon baking soda & 1 tsp vinegar
– 300g sour deseeded cherries

Chocolate icing ingredients:

– 50g dark 70% chocolate
– 50ml 33% cream
– 20g butter

Mascarpone layer ingredients:

– 250g Mascarpone
– 4 tbsp 33% cream
– 2 tbsp sugar

Method:

1 Sponge cake:
1.1 Pre-heat the oven to 180C
1.2 Whisk 3 eggs & 80g sugar
1.3 Add cocoa powder & flour: mix well
1.4 Add baking soda & vinegar: mix well
1.5 Transfer the batter into the buttered 25x25cm baking form
1.6 Distribute the cherries over the dough
1.7 Bake at 180C for 20-25 minutes (test whether it’s ready with a wooden stick)
1.8 Let it cool down
2 Mascarpone layer:
2.1 Combine mascarpone layer ingredients: mix them well with a fork! 🙂
2.2 Put the mixture in the fridge until the cake cools down
2.3 You will get so beautiful Donau Welle waves caused by the cherries sinking in the batter… I do not have them on the photo since I flipped the cake upside down, pity. :-b
3 Butter the mascarpone layer on the cake. I distributed mascarpone only on half a cake (see photo). Distribute it overall if you aim for a thinner layer 🙂
4 Chocolate icing:
4.1 Melt chocolate & butter in 33% cream constantly stirring the mixture
4.2 Pour the icing quickly but carefully over the Mascarpone layer
5 Put the cake in the fridge overnight
6 Enjoy the cake the next day if you have a special occasion for such a cake, of course 😉 Or if falling autumn leaves make you think about sunny days by the Danube…
