    The newspaper clipping from my grandmother's recipe box said that this recipe is from the Hotel Esplanade Praha, Prague, Czech Republic. Ludlat Dort is a sour cherry cake that is spiked with rum. Made for a Tag Game. If you like German Chocolate Cake, you will love this one!!

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 cup sour cherry, from can drained
    • rum (to cover cherries)
    • 1/4 cup butter
    • 1 cup powdered sugar
    • 8 egg yolks
    • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
    • 1 cup flour
    • 8 egg whites
    • 1/2 pint whipping cream
    • 2 semi-sweet chocolate baking squares
    • 1 bittersweet chocolate square
    • chocolate frosting


    1. 1
      Cover the cherries with rum and allow to soak overnight.
    2. 2
      Beat butter, sugar and egg yolks until light and fluffy. Add cocoa powder and mix well. Add flour gradually. Beat egg whites stiff and fold into cocoa mixture.
    3. 3
      Pour into two layer pans and bake in 300F oven for 45 minutes. Remove from pans and cool on rack.
    4. 4
      In double boiler, bring cream and chocolate squares to melting point stirring continuously. When chocolate is melted, remove from heat and allow to cool completely. It will beat better if you refrigerate it for a time. Beat until very smooth and thick.
