Cherry Chocolate Cake

With such a chilly week, I need something sweet to comfort me & get me working.
I actually love winter & cold but it's too chilly outside.
I cannot help but keep thinking about chocolate & baking.
This cake is light but yet very chocolate.
There is a layer of cherries on the bottom.

Recipe (8'' x 4'' loaf pan):
3 eggs
35g sugar x 2
17g plain flour
17g cornflour
20g cocoa powder
35g butter (melted)
Frozen cherries

Line the pan with a sheet of parchment paper.
Arrange a layer of cherries in the prepared pan.
In large bowl, beat the egg yolks with sugar (35g) until thick & pale.
In another large bowl, whisk the egg white until stiff.
Add in the sugar in 3 portions during the whisking.
Mix a spatula of whipped egg white with the beaten egg yolks.
Mix & sieve all flours, then fold half of the flours into the egg yolks.
Fold in another spatula of whipped egg white.
Add melted butter, fold gently until smooth.
Pour into the remaining whipped egg white & fold gently until smooth.
Fill in the prepared pan.
Bake in a preheated oven at 180’C for 25 - 30 min.
