Here I show you my Cherry Cake recipe. I bake this sure-fire cake preferably in small moulds. With me every guest gets his own cake on the table! It’s a pleasure, please try it out…
You can serve the Tarte wonderfully as dessert or with coffee in the afternoon. Tastes great for any occasion, I promise!
For an ingenious baking experience you will find many step-by-step photos as accompanying instructions.
I wish you all the best!
1. How to prepare easy Shortcrust Pastry
We’ll start with the shortcrust pastry. The cake base may get a great aroma so I add to the classic recipe with flour, egg, sugar, vanilla aroma, lemon grater and a pinch of salt.
You are welcome to replace the vanilla flavour with a vanilla pod. Cut the flattened vanilla pod once lengthwise and scrape the pulp out of the pod.
Pour the marrow into the cake dough and soak the pod in sugar. After a few days, the homemade vanilla sugar is ready!
1.1 Blind Baking of Cake Base
Ever heard of blind baking? But you don’t bind your eyes when baking 🙂
To bake the tart bottoms you need dried legumes, which are easily available dried peas or beans, in addition to the ingredients already mentioned.
The raw dough in the tin gets the peas to bake. That is not prince on the pea but cake and pea…
So the cake dough does not rise too strongly during the subsequent baking.
This is called blind baking.
If you have read up to here and now you think… Hey Thomas, great recipe, everything sounds awesome, but I still don’t do it because it’s too much effort for me…
Then I have for you to run warm a simple and fast Cherry-pie Recipe with Puff Pastry. Preparation time less than 30 minutes!
Please take a look…
2. Prepare Filling for Cherry Cake!
The cake pans are baked with the shortcrust pastry, now we want to take care of the filling…
The filling is similar to the cheesecake filling:
Besides curd I add cream cheese. The combination prepares a tender nest for the cherries. That’s what it’s all about: cake filling and base create a harmonious whole.
So that we don’t lose the overview, we now have the overview of the cake ingredients…
- Shortcrust dough in the small forms baked blind with peas
- Filling cream with curd cheese and cream cheese
- Fresh cherries or cherries from the glass
How to use cooked cherries from the glass for the cherry pie:
The cherries are already cooked and therefore very soft. That’s why I don’t bake the cherries from the glass.
Here’s my tip:
Strain the cherries onto a sieve and collect the juice in a pot. Reduce the cherry juice very much, let it cool lukewarm, then marinate the cherries in it.
Add whole, very little balsamic vinegar to the cherries… place the prepared cherries with boiled cherry ice cream on the cake filling…. WOW please try it, it tastes fantastic!
Morello cherries are sour cherries, they taste delicious on the cake!
How to use fresh cherries…
Just wash the fresh cherries, pit them and cut them in half. Place the halved cherries in the cake filling.
Alternatively, boil the cherries briefly with sugar and rum and a little water. Then remove the cherries and reduce the juice. Marinate the cherries shortly before serving in the reduced cherry juice (cherry ice cream) and place on the baked cake.
