Cherry Kuchen

Cherry Kuchen

Cherries are paired with an easy-to-prepare crust and baked until golden to make this time-honored dessert.

Cherry Kuchen


4 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 Tbsp. baking powder
3/4 cup butter, chilled, cut into small pieces
1 1/2 cups cold milk
3 large eggs
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
2 qt. (72 oz.) LUCKY LEAF Cherry Pie Filling**
1/2 cup mixture of granulated sugar and ground cinnamon


  1. In bowl combine flour, sugar and baking powder; blend well. Cut in butter to form an even-crumbed mixture.
  2. In small bowl, mix milk, egg and vanilla; add to flour mixture and just mix until combined.
  3. Pour Cherry Pie Filling evenly into a greased, full-size steamtable pan; top with an even layer of dough mixture. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon mixture.
  4. Bake in 350°F. oven for 30-35 minutes or until bubbling and topping is golden brown. Remove from heat and let stand 15 minutes before serving.
  5. Serve a 1/2-cup scoop of Kuchen with a 1 Tbsp. dollop of sweetened sour cream, if desired.
