First sweet, finally – sour cherry sponge cake

In general I don’t have a sweet tooth, I prefer baking them than eating sweets (not like my boyfriend)  but I like cakes with fruits, especially with sour cherry. Plus this is the cake I first learned how to bake when I was around 15. I never cooked, but I remember baking this typical Hungarian cake several times.  I think there are so many steps where a sponge cake can be ruined (like my most obvious one in this case: forgetting the baking powder…I did…really.) so I will make an entire post about the most important rules of sponge cake,but more on that later. So this time I forgot to add the baking powder, as you can see they are flat, but still tasted great so I don’t care, I am still proud enough to post it:)
