Default Amaretto Cake with Kirsch Cherry Preserves + Cream (Cake Recipes)


Prep Time: 30 minutes - 1 hour | Cook Time: 30 minutes - 1 hour | Serves: 8
Dessert Cakes American

Ingredients:





Amaretto cake with Kirsch cherry preserves and kirsch cream

Let me just say that I love cherries, and I love almonds, and I adore marzipan. This dessert was like heaven for me. Also, Bonne Maman brand preserves are the best. They just taste like fruit and sugar. Great, bright true flavor and no corn syrup.

For the cake:

3/4 cup sugar
1 stick unsalted ****er at room temp
7 oz almond paste (buy the stuff in the jar if you can, just don�t use the whole thing)
3 large eggs
1 TB plus 2 TB amaretto
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

For the cherries:
1/2 jar Bonne Maman cherry preserves (other brands are ok, but these are the best)
2-3 TB kirsch (all the liquor store had was Monarch. Definitely get better stuff if you can.)

For kirsch cream:
1/2 TB whipping cream
1 TB kirsch
2 tsp sugar

Sliced almonds (optional)

Step 1:








Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a medium bowl, sift together flour, salt and baking powder. Set aside. In a large bowl (stand mixer if you have one), cream ****er and sugar.

Step 2:






Add in almond paste in little tiny pieces, one at a time, beating after each addition until it�s combined. Yes this will take a while but this is really the hardest part so it�s all easy from here. If you don�t have a stand mixer and you�re mixing it by hand, grate the almond paste before hand and just add it in little bits.
