Cherry cake remake — this pyramid will make you the star of the party buffet!

The pyramids of Ancient Egypt hide a lot of secrets and ours is no different. I mean, how can something so delicious and seemingly intricate actually be so easy to make? The video reveals all...

You'll need:

For the dough:

  • 6.7 oz soft butter
  • 3 cups flour
  • ⅘ cup sugar
  • ⅘ cup sour cream
  • flour for covering the worktop 
  • egg wash

For the filling:

  • 24.7 oz sour cherries (washed and pitted)

For the cream:

  • 2⅕ cups sour cream
  • ⅘ cup icing sugar

For the finishing touch:

  • 5.3 oz dark chocolate

Here's how:

  1. Mix the butter with the flour, sugar and sour cream. Now knead it into a dough using an electric whisk. Place the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  2. Now separate the dough into 15 individual pieces. Roll out each piece on a worktop covered in flour and cut it into a rectangular shape. The size should be about 8 in x 2.5 in. Repeat this step for all 15 pieces of dough.
  3. Place a row of cherries on each rolled out piece of dough. Keep them in the center of the dough so that you can get a hold of the edges easily and begin to roll the dough up easily.
  4. Now place all 15 cherry rolls on a baking tray covered with baking parchment and brush egg wash onto them. The rolls are then baked for approx. 15 minutes at 360°F. Leave the rolls to cool after baking.
  5. For the cream, mix the rest of the sour cream with the icing sugar.
  6. Now it's time to build your pyramid, so here's how to do it: First place five rolls next to each other and spread some cream on top. Then place four rolls on top of these and add more cream. Repeat this step for the layers made up of three and two rolls before placing the final roll on top. Spread the rest of the cream over the outside of the pyramid and on top. Refrigerate the cake for at least four hours; we recommend keeping it in the fridge for 12 hours for the best results.
  7. Now grate the chocolate on top of your masterpiece for the finishing touch.

Now that the secret is out, it's time to reach for your spoon and dig in! It's just a shame that your Cherry Pyramid Cake won't last as long as those ancient relics in Egypt and Mexico. It's simply too tasty!
