Cherry Crumble Cake with Marzipan

, , , ,

We had lots of cherries this season, we made a crumble cake with cherries and marzipan, not to forget our cherry coconut jam.

We mixed half of the marzipan to the shortcrust pastry and the other half we spread over the cherries.

I could not wait and let the cake cool down completely, so it was still fluid on the inside.
It doesn’t look that good, but tasted really good!

Give it a try!

I used this stoner utensil to pit the cherries. Works very well! Basically it doesn’t matter which utensil you use, you will always have a mess. With this handset, you can be sure that you have no stones in the cherries. (Afiliate Link)
Works well with olives too!

    Hi there,

    This sounds delicious! I must try it…
    For some strange reason, there is nothing under point 1. on the English version when I set my iPad to „Show reader view“. (I do this to eliminate the ads, so it‘s easier to follow the recipe.)
    But under the normal settings (with mini photos at each step) it said to grate the marzipan, so now I know!
    This is just for your info. Keep up the good work!
