Cherry Cake

A French inspired recipe

This cake is perfect for all summer fruits or berries. I tried it once with fresh hand-picked cherries and the other time with cherries and current. However, it can be prepared also with apricots, peaches or berries.

Ingredients (for 6 ppl)

  • 1400 gr cherries
  • 6 eggs
  • 200 gr sugar
  • 400 gr milk
  • 180 gr flour
  • 40 gr brandy/rhum
  • Vanilla extract
  • One pinch of salt


  1. First step is to wash the cherries and remove the stone. For this step you can either use a stone remover or a knife. Once finished let them on the side.
  2. Now you can beat the eggs together with the sugar. You can use an electric whisk and keep whisking until the mixture double in size and reaches a foamy consistency.
  3. Add salt, vanilla extract and the flour. For this step you can use a sieve to evenly distribute the flour without crumbs and whisk at a low speed.
  4. Once the mixture is well blended, proceeds with adding milk, Brandy/Rhum and whisk by hand.
  5. Take a tray and lay the cherries without the stone evenly on the surface.
  6. Pour the mixture on top.
  7. Bake for 40/45 min at 180° degrees.
  8. Serve with icing sugar on top or whipped cream on the side.


  • When whisking the eggs with the sugar, make sure to use an electric whisk and when add the milk and the Brandy/Rhum use a normal hand whisk.
