Basic cake mixture

Dissolve the salt into the eggs

Beat the sugars and the melted butter using a whisk

Then, in three parts, fold in the eggs at room temperature

Sieve the flour mixed with the baking powder

Mix the flour and baking powder into the wet mixture

Next add cream and Cointreau

Low-fat cream cheese

Soften the cheese and the icing sugar together using the beater blade in the mixer

Whip the cream until you obtain the consistency of Chantilly cream

Fold the cream into the cheese at the same time as the liqueur if used

Leave to chill or use immediately


Pour the mixture into the waffle moulds and add the French Glacé Cherries, macerated in the Cointreau 24 hours in advance


Cover with a sheet of greaseproof paper and then with a baking tray

Bake immediately for 17 minutes in a fan-assisted oven preheated to 160°C

Leave to cool, then set in a blast chiller before removing from the moulds


Bring the sugar and water to the boil. Take the mixture off the heat, and add the flavourings

Leave to infuse for 15 minutes. Pass through a fine chinois

Chill in the refrigerator


Drain on a wire rack

Decorate with the low-fat cream cheese using a piping bag fitted with a Saint-Honoré nozzle to pipe small waves of cream

These red and green French Glacé Cherries are decorative, add crunch and are pretty and stable with even any coating
