Quark. Curd. Cream cheese.

Only in combination with cherries. They always take me back to summertime.

When you ready come and get it!

Serves: 12

Ingredients for the dough:

  • 400 g all-purpose flour
  • 150 g granulated sugar
  • 250 g melted butter
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 4 soup spoons cocoa powder
  • 1 jar of cherries

Ingredients for the filling:

  • 500 ml milk
  • 4 tsp vanilla sugar
  • 2 vanilla puddings
  • 250 g butter
  • 100 g granulated sugar
  • 500 g curd/quark or cream cheese
  • Lemon zest
Just bit of granulated sugar on the top. The sweeter The better.


  1. First of all, mix all ingredients for dough together and knead dough. When the dough is thick enough, divide it into two part and let it cool in the fridge for half an hour.
  2. In meantime, cook creamy vanilla pudding from milk and vanilla sugar. Mix the butter with vanilla sugar and granulated sugar and add quark/curd with lemon zest. When the vanilla pudding is cold enough, stir both parts together.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180°C and dust the cake round with butter and flour.
  4. Get the half of your dough ready and grade it to the bottom of your cake shape to create a thick layer. Bake the bottom layer for 20 minutes and let it cool.
  5. Now you are ready to put the yummy filling on the chocolate layer together with cherries. Take the second part of dough and grade it on the top. Bake for other 10 – 20 minutes so it gets crunchy.

Yummy yummy to your tummy!
