Fruit Tart with Fresh Berries-”OBSTKUCHEN”

Description:

It is one of my favorite German Cakes. “Obstkuchen” is a great recipe and  great time for fresh berries starting April until June, light, easy and delicious cake…We can make this with any of your favorite berries of your choice. I have used Raspberries for this time and I have used our tart recipe for the dough from “the Plum Tart” recipe from our previous recipe.

Details:

Prep Time : 30 min
Cook Time :  15-20min ( or until Golden it bakes very fast depending on how thin the tart dough has been prepared!!!)
Ready Time : 60min
Servings : 8-10 slices

Ingredients:

For the Tart Dough ( Same as our Plum Tart Dough on our previous recipe):

2 cups Flour
1 stick Butter
1/2 cup Sugar
1 Egg Yolk
1 tablespoon Lemon Zest
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Sugar

To Decorate:

Vanilla Sauce Filling:

1 Package Vanilla Sauce Mix

2 Tbs Sugar

1 Cup of Cold Milk

Fruit:

15-18 Oz. fresh Raspberries

Clear Glaze:

1 Package of Clear Glaze ( Dr. Oetker)

2 Tbsp Sugar

1 cup of Water

Baking Equipment:

Tart Pan ( Rectangle or Round 9 1/2″)

Step 1:

Dough:

Please add all the dough ingredients inside of a deep dish bowl and using the mixer, blend all the ingredients well until it reaches a sandy texture. After mixing please use only half of the dough or according to your tart form size save the rest of the dough and freeze it inside a Ziploc to use it for another great recipe!

Tart Form:

Butter a 9 1/2 inch Tart Form and place the dough by sprinkling all around the form equally. After placing the dough press with you hand to create a firm dough and to give the shape of our tart form perfectly.

Form the tart dough into the tart form firmly and as thin as possible!

Round (9 1/2″)

or

Rectangle Tart Form ( one of my favorite!)

Step 2:

Bake in 350F for 15-20 min until golden color! It might take less time depending on the thickness of your dough on the tart form and let it cool…

Step 3:

Vanilla Sauce:

Mix the Vanilla Sauce mix with 2 tbs Sugar first inside a small pot and then place on the stove on low medium heat.

Add 1 cup of milk to the mixture and mix well, by stirring constantly until the sauce thickens.

Step 4:

After the sauce is done, before it is cooled poor inside the baked tart shell.

Step 5:

Fruit:

Wash and dry the fruit very well and place one by one on top of the vanilla sauce mixture tart one by one. You can even use different berries and create a great color combination!

Step 6:

Clear Glaze:

I like to use jelly like glaze and best one is Dr. Oetker’s Clear Glaze. Place on a small pot 1 package Glaze Mix Powder.

Add 2 Tbs Sugar and mix well with the Clear Glaze Powder and add 1 cup of water to the mixture. Place the mixture on low heat on top of the stove. Mix well and stir until it heats up and becomes clear and thick. While it is still warm use a metal spoon and poor over the fruits equally, by making sure that every fruit is covered with glaze.

Step 7:

Let it cool and serve the same day for best result!

After it has cooled we can take out from the tart form and place it on a serving plate!

Bon Appetit!
