The cherry is not just for decorating the top of the ice cream but is a fruit with a scarlet color and a special flavor that is useful for the great chefs of the kitchen to prepare a wide variety of dishes such as beverages, sauces, dressings, salads, gazpacho, cakes, cookies, ice cream, jelly, etc. and gives a special touch to the dishes. Here are some cherry recipes that you will love!
Ingredients (8-10 servings)
- 750 grams of cherries
- 300 grams of cream cheese (no salty) type Philadelphia
- 2 yogurts (natural lemon flavor)
- 400 grams of sugar
- 3 large eggs (or 4 medium)
- 75 grams of whole wheat flour
- 250 ml of water
- For the base: 16 cookies (200 grams) and 75 grams of butter (not margarine)
- Remove the bones of the cherries. There are some specific devices to do this (one by one or more cherries at a time).
- Once cherries are ready, you can set the oven to heat. If you have an air oven, put it at 170 º Celsius and if it is an electric, put to 180 degrees Celsius. The cake is best done at a moderate temperature.
- Take the butter and melt it in the microwave or in a saucepan. Take cookies and mash (with a mallet, in a blender or as you prefer). Mix cookies and butter.
- Take a cake pan from about 22 centimeters in diameter and extend the cookies with the butter on the bottom.
- Now in a bowl, mix the cheese and yogurt with a whisk (or electric mixer) and reserve.
- In another bowl, beat well (best with an electric mixer) the eggs and 150 grams of sugar. Then gradually add the sifted flour to avoid lumps. Mix with a rubber spatula.
- With the same rubber spatula, mix the two shakes (eggs, sugar and yogurt-cheese) and pour on mold.
- Put the cake in the oven for 35 minutes. After this time, open the door and cut on the center of the cake with a wooden toothpick and if it comes out clean then the cake is ready.
- While the cake is baked, we will prepare the cherries. Put in a saucepan to heat the quart of water with the remaining 250 grams of sugar.
- When sugar dissolves, add the cherries. Leave on medium heat for 10 minutes.
- After this time, cherries will be ready and syrup will have picked a beautiful red color (like cherries). Remove the cherries with a slotted spoon and set aside. Leave the syrup to the fire until it forms a thick syrup that we will use to pour on the cake. The time depends on the temperature of the fire.
- When the cheesecake is fully baked, take it out of the oven and let cool. Then take off the mold and distribute cherries over and finally pour the syrup on top.
- Put it in the refrigerator and leave at least two or three hours (better with a little cold).
NOTE: To make this cake, 500 grams of cherries would be enough but if you want that the surface of the cake is completely covered with cherries, you need 750 grams of cherries in the recipe.
You have to keep in mind that 500 grams of cherries is equal to 350 grams of cherries without bones and that the amounts given in the recipe includes cherry and bone.
