  • Summary

    A show-stopper with everyone's fave flavours. Ideal for a special occasion as the sponge is chiffon light. Makes 3-4 sponges @ 20cm. Just halve the mixture for a regular size sandwich cake. I used silicon baking moulds but if using regular tins, line first with baking paper.

    Ingredients

    • 300g plain flour
    • 300g caster sugar
    • 100g cocoa powder
    • 4 tsps baking powder
    • 2 tsps baking soda
    • 200ml warm water
    • 200ml sunflower vegetable oil
    • 8 egg yolks
    • 4 egg whites
    • 2 tsps vanilla extract
    • FILLING & TOPPING
    • 400g marscarpone
    • 200g ricotta
    • 150ml cherry yoghurt
    • 2 tbsp icing sugar, sieved
    • cherry jam or conserve – a good half-3/4 jar
    • 3 tbsps Kirsch (cherry liqueur or cherry brandy) – optional
    • chocolate flake bars
    • fresh cherries, pitted for filling plus some whole for the topping
