DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • When separating the eggs, place 6 of the egg whites in a large mixing bowl and 8 egg yolks in a small bowl for the cake. Reserve 1 egg yolk for the custard, 2 egg whites for the frosting, and use the remaining egg white in another recipe.
  • Beat 6 egg whites until fluffy.
  • Add sugar a little at a time until completely incorporated.
  • Beat in 8 egg yolks.
  • Using a wooden spoon, stir in the flour, milk, and water.
  • Pour into an ungreased 13x9” baking pan. Be careful not to overfill pan with batter, since frosting will be placed on top.
  • Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.
  • While cake is baking, combine the ingredients for the custard filling in a blender and blend well.
  • Pour over the cake slowly as soon as it comes out of the oven. Chill cake for 7-8 hours.
  • For the frosting, beat the 2 reserved egg whites until fluffy.
  • While beating, add sugar a little at a time.
  • Continue beating as you add the syrup.
  • When the frosting is stiff, spread over cake.
  • Decorate with cherries.
