Baking Instructions 4th of July Fruit Cake German Style
– Mix eggs with sugar and beat until dough is foamy.
– Add oil spoon by spoon to the eggs, then sieve in flour.
– Mix flour and baking powder, then combine with egg mix. Mix well.
– Grease the baking form with some butter.
– Sprinkle the form with some breadcrumbs of neutral taste (no spices or herbs).
– Pour dough into a non-stick German baking form for the base cake, diameter 11 inches.
For the cream combine all ingredients and mix until you get a smooth cream.
– When the base cake has cooled off completely, place the cream on top.
– Spread even with a spoon.
– Place the raspberries and blueberries into the cream. You can make the flag or a star in the middle with blueberries surrounded by the raspberries.
Alternatively use strawberries for this cake.
If you cannot get quark you can use just whipped cream. Important is to have a white background.
If you are not using any cream, just fruit, you would add the glaze on top.
