Hungarian chocolate trifle

Also called Somloi Galuska. This is a much simplified version, so it doesn't really deserve the name.

Ingredients
cake:
4 eggs
125 g sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp lemon juice
40 g flour
pinch salt

filling:
chocolate pudding
rum extract
sour cherries preserved in rum
raisins soaked in rum

topping:
whipped cream
cocoa powder

Preparation
Line a 15x10 inch baking sheet with parchment paper, grease and flour. Preheat the oven to 400F.

Separate the eggs. Beat the egg yolks for a minute, then add the sugar and beat until the sugar is completely dissolved, and the mixture is pale yellow and foamy. Mix in the lemon juice, vanilla and flour.

In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites to stiff peaks with the salt. Fold a little bit of it into the yolk mixture. Add the rest and gently fold in. Pour into baking shape. Bake until golden brown, allow to cool in the oven for a few minutes, before removing from the baking shape.

Prepare the chocolate pudding, and mix in rum extract to taste. Layer pieces of the cake with the chocolate pudding, studding it with cherries and raisins (personally, I skip the raisins) into small ramekins (makes about 5).

Finish with a layer of chocolate pudding. Dust with unsweetened cocoa powder. Allow to cool. Before serving, top with whipped cream.
