Each piece tastes different

This curd cake contains five different types of fruit. They are not mixed, but distributed on it piece by piece. To do this, the cake is visually divided into several pieces before baking and each piece of cake is topped with different fruits. Then, when you cut the cake into pieces after baking, a few pieces of cake each have a different fruit flavor, creating a surprise for your loved ones.

The fact that the curd cake with crumbles is topped with different fruits in pieces means that it is not only a surprise in terms of taste.

Thus, the fruit curd cake fits perfectly for a summer party. But because it is very easy to make, you can also spoil your loved ones with it during the week or on the weekend.

Use fruit and berries for the curd cake according to your taste and also depending on the season of the fruit. I made it with five different kinds of fruit. They were fresh strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, apricots and peaches. Of course, you can use more than five kinds of fruit here. Before baking, visually divide the curd cake into seven or ten cake pieces, for example, and top each piece with the fruit of your choice.

How to make fruit curd cake with crumbles: tips and tricks

  • Butter, sour cream and egg for the dough must necessarily be cold.
  • As vanilla for the dough, the crumbles and the filling go among other things vanilla sugar, vanilla powder, vanilla extract or vanilla bean scraped out.
  • In any case, do not knead the dough too long, but briefly to a consistency that is only roughly homogeneous, so that it tastes crumbly and not firm after baking.
  • You can adjust the amount of sugar for the curd filling according to your taste.
  • If you like the curd filling not so creamy, but firmer, you can put a little more cornstarch in it.
  • I used a Ø 30 cm tart pan to bake the cake. Alternatively you can use a Ø 26 cm or Ø 28 cm springform pan. Note that the baking time could be longer in this case, as the cake would be smaller in diameter but thicker in such a pan.
  • The cake is ready when it is still slightly wobbly in the middle and its edges are golden brown.
