Russian Cherry Cake Recipe of [Updated
The Russian cherry cake is a very special cake, from the dough to its shape. It is prepared with a dough without eggs, made of flour, butter, sugar and yogurt, which has a short pastry consistency. From this is obtained strips that are filled with pitted cherries and caster sugar, and then rolled to create small cylinders that will form a nice spiral. The final consistency is not that of a short pastry but a middle way between this and a brioche, difficult to explain, you have to try it!
