If you look at the recipe, you will notice that it is actually a perfectly normal cherry cake made from sponge mixture – but which somehow tastes much better than others. It’s just a special cherry cake like grandma’s. She has got that Crumble cherry cake recipe only a few years ago dug up from the depths of their huge baking recipe collection. And was thrilled.

So there it was: A quick cherry cake with sprinkles that looks anything but extraordinary, but tastes soooooooo delicious! Not only with cherries, by the way. The original recipe is, for example, with plums.

A little tip: Especially with cakes like this one, which should be rather high, I like to limit my tray with a baking frame or double-folded aluminum foil.

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees top and bottom heat. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and possibly border it with a baking frame or double-folded aluminum foil so that there is no flat edge. Wash the cherries, stone them or – if out of the glass – let them drain.
  • First prepare the crumble. To do this, add the melted butter to the flour and sugar. First knead with the dough hook or fork, then crumble with your fingers to make nice crumble.
  • Mix the softened butter with the sugar until frothy. Stir in the eggs one at a time. Mix the flour, starch, baking powder, lemon zest and salt. Stir in alternately with the milk to make the dough. Use only enough milk until the batter falls from the spoon and tears with difficulty.
  • Spread the dough on the baking sheet. Spread the cherries on top. Cover with the sprinkles. Bake the cake for about 35-40 minutes.


  • The cherry cake also tastes good with blueberries, plums, currants or cherries from the glass.
