Dreamy Summer Cake

It’s getting warmer outside and our desire for enjoying a coffee on the balcony rises. But there is still something missing…Of course…A summer cake with with lots of fruits and a refreshing mascarpone-curd cheese cream. Doesn’t it sound dreamlike!? It tastes heavenly and it is easy to make…Now we are ready for the summer :-)

Serves 8-10 | Time needed  ~  1 h + 3 h cooling time

3 eggs
80 g sugar
5 tbsp lukewarm water
100 g sifted flour
1 tsp baking-powder
250 g mascarpone
125 g low-fat curd cheese (quark)
250 ml whipped cream (with cream stiffener)
50 g sugar
1 package of vanilla sugar
500 g “rote Grütze”
Coconut flakes for decoration

For the base

  1. Place the eggs, sugar and lukewarm water in a bowl and mix around for 5 min using a hand mixer.
  2. Carefully fold in the sifted flour and baking-powder without using the hand mixer anymore.
  3. Lay out a 26 cm springform pan with baking paper.
  4. Spread the mixture in the springform pan and bake at 160 °C (fan oven) for 30 min.
  5. Take the cake out of the springform and allow to cool completely.

For the cream filling

  1. Place the mascarpone and curd cheese in a bowl and stir until the mixture is smooth.
  2. Fold in the wipped cream, sugar and vanille sugar.
  3. Pour half of the mixture over the pre-baked base. Than pour half of the red fruit jely on top of it.
  4. Repeat step three until all materials are processed solid.
  5. Top the cake with coconut flakes and allow to cool for about 3 h in the fridge.
  6. Enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea!

You can also use fresh or frozen berries instead of the “rote Grütze”.
