READY IN: 1hr 10mins




  • Add water to beaten eggs and dissolve dry yeast in this mixture. Let all these ingredients rest refrigerated for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, blend with a pastry blender or by hand flour, salt, sugar, butter and cardamom.
  • In a large mixing bowl, make a ring of blended flour. Pour chilled yeast mixture into the center and work it into dry ingredients. Knead until smooth, about 2 minutes. Form dough into ball and let rest, covered for about 20 minutes.
  • Roll out dough into 2 9x9 baking dishes. Push edges of dough up against dish to prevent fruit topping from spilling.
  • For topping, spread cherries over top of dough. With a pasty blender or fork, cut butter into flour and sugar until small crumbs of mixture are formed. Sprinkle crumb mixture over top of cherries.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes until topping begins to golden.
