Beat the eggs and sugar with beater till very thick ribbon falls [beat for approx 10 mins but i never saw those thick ribbons:(]add vanilla essence and beat again for 1 min.
Turn gently into tin and bake for 30-35 mins till a toothpick comes out clean(but my oven took only20 mins).leave d cake for completely cool down n cut in 2layers.
Whip the cream with 4-5tbs powdered sugar until thick and holds peaks. divide into 2 bowl.mix chopped cherries in one bowl.Place the bottom layer n spread the cream with chopped cherries.
