As sour cherries, the morello cherries are rich in antioxidants which protect the body cells - this makes the cherries a really good anti-aging food! Especially the anthocyanins of the deep red fruits have anti-inflammatory properties and can even help to prevent rheumatism.

Depending on your preference, you can also prepare the cake as a sheet cake - this will be flatter, but then it is easier to portion.

Preparation steps


For the batter: Preheat oven to 180°C (approximately 350°F).


Beat butter and sugar until creamy. Stir in eggs and a pinch of salt. Combine flour and baking powder. Alternate adding flour and milk to butter mixture. Pour 2/3 of the batter into a buttered baking dish and spread even. Stir cocoa and rum into remaining batter and pour onto light batter. Drain cherries, set aside 15 and spread remaining cherries onto batter. Bake for 45-50 minutes.


For the cream: Combine pudding powder and 3 tablespoons milk. Boil remaining milk and sugar in a pot, then stir in pudding powder. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, pour into a bowl, sprinkle with powdered sugar and let cool.


Beat butter and powdered sugar until creamy and gradually fold into custard pudding.


Remove cake from oven and let cool. Spread cream onto cake and chill for 1 hour.


For the topping: Chop chocolate and melt with cream over a double boiler. Remove from heat, let cool slightly and spread onto cream. Top with remaining cherries and chocolate flowers and let set. Slice and serve.
