Peach Cherry Tart with Streusel

Here's an easy Peach Cherry Tart recipe, aka Kirsch-Pfirsich-Butterstreuseltart,  that is covered in delicious butter streusel - a traditional German cake that's so easy to make. 

Using cherries and peaches in combination makes this tart extra special. A 10-inch spring-form pan with a removable bottom is ideal. It makes serving so much easier. If you happen to have a tart pan with a removable bottom, that's great too. Then the edge will have a pretty fluted look.

For this cake, you can use all cherries or all peaches. You can even try it with other fruits. Use the combinations that you like best. 

I'll restate my standard warning for "streusel" cakes. The streusel topping is SO delicious, even un-baked, that it often finds its way into stray little mouths that might be near :-)

Fresh cherries are best. Wash and pit them. You can use jarred or canned ones, but fresh is best. Be careful with both though. I've found pits in jarred and canned ones, usually when eating. I always tell my guests to be careful when eating something with cherries. Just in case!

For the peaches, using canned peach halves is fine. If using fresh, peel them first by briefly plunging into boiling water to help loosen peel.

Oma's Tip

I  found that I needed to put a baking sheet under the springform pan. Sometimes the butter comes oozing out of the pan during baking and smokes if it drips onto the bottom of the oven.

Perhaps it's just my pan, but it's always safer to use a baking sheet anyways.
