Recipe of Cherry cake


Preheat the oven to 180°C (convection oven 160°C).


Prepare 500 g of FunCakes Mix for Cookies according to the instructions on the package. Let the dough rest for at least 1 hour.


Prepare 100 g FunCakes Mix for Crème Patisserie and let the cream stiffen for a while.


Knead the almond paste well with the egg. Roll out the cookie dough into a piece about 1 centimeter thick. Cover a greased and floured springform pan with this. Cover the piece with pieces of almond paste, up to about 1 centimeter from the edge.


Now pipe a layer of pastry cream on the cake. Stay approx. 8 mm from the edge. Bake the cake in 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Let the tart cool down using a cooling rack.


Fill the cake with the cherry pie filling or jam and decorate the cake with whipped cream or buttercream as desired.
