Cherry Cake

Sometimes best things happen when you have left overs …you can be creative and invent a new dish or you immediately know that you have enough left over stuff that will suffice for a certain recipe. Latter one was the case when I had some left over pickled cherries…. and I indeed had the perfect recipe for it: A Cherry Cake! 🙂

  • 4 Eggs
  • 200g Butter
  • 150g Sugar
  • 100g Wheat Flour
  • 250g Spelt Flour
  • 1 Tbl Sp Baking Powder
  • 50 ml Milk
  • Grated zest of a Lemon
  • Salt
  • Cherries

Quick & Tasty. This cake is pretty simple: Seperate the eggs. Beat the egg white until stiff. Mix the butter and sugar with the egg yolk until creamy. Then mix in the lemon zest and salt. Afterwards you should add the flour with the baking powder and milk. Carefully add the egg white. Final step: Put the dough in the baking tin and add the cherries. You can either place them on top like I did or put 2/3 of the dough first in the tin, add the cherries and then top it with the remaining dough. Put it in the oven for an hour at 200°C.

I’m topping the cake with powder sugar.
