You will love this German Cherry Streusel Cake (Streusel are crumbles). It needs some special ingredients but it is worth it to try. Trader Joe’s or Aldi has the sour cherries, and we have seen them also in some other supermarkets. Make sure not to use cherries with added sugar. The pudding powder can be purchased at Cost Plus, or online. Alternatively use corn starch and vanilla extract. Happy Cooking!
Combine flour, sugar, vanilla sugar and salt. Add butter in small pieces.
Knead fast with kneading hooks and make Streusel (crumbles). You also can use the hands.
Place in fridge.
Drain cherries, keep the liquid.
With 6 tbsp from the cherry liquid mix pudding powder and sugar. Make the pudding per instructions. You don’t use milk, only the cherry juice. Even you will not have the requested amount of liquid, it is ok. The pudding will be firmer. If you don’t want to use the vanilla pudding powder use corn starch as mentioned in the ingredients list.
Add cherries, jam, bitter almond flavor, lemon juice and vanilla sugar to the pudding.
Grease a 24cm spring form (9 inches)
Pre-heat oven to 350 F.
Place 2/3 of the Streusel into the spring form and press on the bottom and make an edge along the form.
Spread cherry filling on the bottom, place remaining Streusel on top.
Sprinkle with almonds.
Bake for 45-50 min until Streusel are golden brown.
