CYBEREALM BBS 315-786-1120

4 1/2 oz Flour
1 tb Cocoa
1 ts Baking powder
2 tb Sugar
1 Egg white
1 3/4 oz Cold margarine
1/2 ts Vanilla

4 Egg yolks
2 tb Warm water
3 1/2 oz Sugar
3 dr Almond flavor
1 pn Cinnamon
3 Egg whites
2 1/2 oz Flour
1 tb Cocoa
3 tb Cornstarch (heaping)
1/2 ts Baking powder

1 Lg jar dark pitted cherries
2 1/2 - 3 1/2 oz Sugar
4 tb Cornstarch
2 tb Cherry spirits
2 ts White ground gelatine
3 tb Water for blending
3/4 pt Fresh double cream
1/2 ts Vanilla
1 tb Powdered sugar
1 oz Grated chocolate

For the pastry bottom:

1. Mix together flour, cocoa, and baking powder; make a hole in the
middle and pour in sugar and egg white, and mix until it is a thick
paste. Cut the margarine in little blocks, and put them in the mid-
dle and voer with a little flour and knead it all quickly with hands
into a smooth, firm paste. If it is sticky, put it in the refrigerator
for a short time. Grease the base of a 10" round cakepan, roll out
the pastry to fit. Preheat oven for 5 minutes on VERY HOT (425F)
and then reduce heat to 350F and bake for 20 minutes.

For the Sponge Cake Mixture:

1. Whisk the egg yolks with the water until frothy, then add 2/3 of
the sugar, a little at a time, and continue whisking until the mix-
ture is creamy and thick. Add the flavorings and the cinnamon. Whisk
the eggwhites in a separate bowl until stiff peaks form and gradually
whisk in the rest of the sugar. Pour the egg white mixture over
the egg yolk mixture. Mix the flour, cornstarch and baking
powder and sift over the egg white mixture. Fold all together very
gently (DO NOT STIR OR BEAT). Line a round cakepan bottom, the same
size as the pastry, with wax paper. Fill with the sponge mixture
and bake immediately in a moderate oven (350F) for 30-35 minutes.

For the Filling and Topping:

1. Pour the cherries through a sieve, and collect the juice. Measure
juice off to 1/2 pint, and if necessary fill up with water to make
1/2 pint, and blend 4 T. of the juice with the cornstarch. Bring the
rest of the juice to a boil, and remove from heat. Stir in the
prepared cornstarch, return to heat, and boil up briefly. Mix in the
cherries and put aside to cool When cold, sweeten to taste with the
sugar and the cherry spirits. Blend the gelatine with water and set
aside for 10 minutes to swell. Stir over low heat until gelatine is
almost completely dissolved, then cool. Whip the cream until almost
thick, then add the lukewarm gelatine mixture and the powdered
sugar, continue whisking until it is quite stiff.

2. Spread 1/2 of the cherry mix and 1/2 of the cream over the pastry
layer base. Cut the sponge through once horizontally and lay one
half on the pastry base. Press well. Cover with the rest of the
cherry filling and 1/2 of the remaining cream. Cover this with the
other half of the sponge cake and pile the rest of the whipped
cream on top. Sprinkle with the grated chocolate. Cool well before
