Mug cake with cherries

A simple version of the recipe for a cherry pie, which looks really fabulous thanks to the meringue.

What will we need

For the dough

  • 2 cups semi-coarse flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 125 g of butter
  • 3 spoons of cocoa
  • 1 baking powder
  • 1 egg


  • cherry marmalade on top of the cake
  • 200 g granulated sugar
  • 4 egg whites
  • 2-3 tablespoons of potato starch
  • 1 tablespoon of vinegar


  1. Mix the loose ingredients, i.e. flour, sugar, cocoa and baking powder.
  2. Add milk, butter and eggs and make a dough.
  3. Pour the mixture into a pre-greased mold and put it in an oven heated to 180 °C. Bake for about 20 minutes.
  4. Next, we will prepare the meringue. Beat the egg whites with sugar and potato starch until stiff.
  5. Let’s go back to the dough. Spread with cherry marmalade (don’t skimp on it, you can spread a good layer).
  6. We apply meringue on top, ideally using pastry tools to create meringues, roses or other favorite shapes.
  7. Put it in the oven again, this time at a lower temperature (150 °C). Bake again for about 20 minutes until the surface turns pink.
  8. Let it cool slowly – the crust could crack if it cools down too quickly.

A lattice cake is also an excellent option. The choice of filling is up to you.

Are cherries healthy?

All varieties of cherries are highly nutritious and full of fiber, vitamins and minerals.

Vitamin C is essential for maintaining your immune system and skin health, while potassium is needed for muscle contraction, nerve function, blood pressure regulation and many other bodily processes.

Cherries are also a good source of fiber, which helps keep your digestive system healthy by supporting beneficial gut bacteria and promoting bowel regularity.

The high antioxidant content can help fight oxidative stress, a condition that is associated with many chronic diseases and premature aging.

Cherry juice and its concentrate have been found to accelerate muscle recovery, reduce exercise-induced muscle soreness, and prevent loss of strength in elite athletes such as cyclists and marathon runners.

Increasing your intake of nutrient-dense fruits like cherries is a tasty way to protect your heart.

Cherries are particularly beneficial in this regard because they are rich in nutrients and compounds known to support heart health, including potassium and polyphenol antioxidants.

Eating cherries or drinking cherry juice can help improve the quality of your sleep.
