Cherry Kuchen Recipe

This dessert is quicker to make than traditional fruit kuchens because frozen bread dough forms the crust.—Sandra Fischer, Sturgis, South Dakota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:8-10 servings


  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons cherry or raspberry pie filling
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  • 1. In a saucepan, combine the cream, sugar and bread crumbs. Cook over medium heat until mixture begins to thicken. Remove from the heat; cook for 15 minutes.
  • 2. Meanwhile, divide the dough in half; press onto the bottom and up the sides of two 9-in. pie plates to form a crust.
  • 3. Pour half of cream mixture into each crust. Drop spoonfuls of pie filling over cream layer. Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over filling.
  • 4. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until edges are golden brown and center is set. Yield: 2 kuchens (8-10 servings each).
