Tips For The Preparation

To make the crumble for the blackberry cake, you can also let the butter melt in a saucepan, then add the sugar and finally knead in the flour. The crumbles taste particularly good if you knead in 1 tablespoon of cinnamon.

General Information Of The Recipe

Fresh blackberries are best. You can also use frozen berries, but these have to be drained especially well. Other fruits are also suitable, such as cherries. Both, fresh and cherries from the jar. But you can also use apples and make an apple cake out of them.

Frequently Asked Questions

What to do if the berries immediately sink into the cake batter?

Use less milk so that the dough is firmer. Dust the berries briefly with flour and then distribute them.

What can I do if my crumbles are getting too hard?

Reduce the baking temperature to 160 degrees and adjust the baking time. Each stove is set differently from the temperatures. Cover the cake with baking paper before the crumbles turn too brown. They should stay nice and light.

What to do if my crumbles don’t stay in shape while baking?

Use cold butter and don’t knead the crumble for too long. It is best to put it in the refrigerator afterwards. This way they stick together better and don’t lose their shape when baking.

  1. In the ingredients it says 250g curd; in the recipe it states quark… is this the same thing? Thank you.

    1. Hey Francesca,
      thank you for the message! Yes, that’s the same. In Germany, we say quark, but the translation for it is curd.

      Best regards,
