Oh, all those lovely berries that we get to indulge in during summer! I was visiting Germany just when the cherries were luscious-looking, dark-red and super sweet. So we ended up eating them for breakfast, as a snack and with dessert. This cherry oven pancake was one of the desserts that got beautiful red cherries as a finishing touch.

This cherry oven pancake is a simple recipe and takes only a few minutes to prep.

It’s a simple recipe and takes only a few minutes to prep. Anybody can do it, really. It’s also a fun baking project for kids. And guess what? Even though it’s that simple to make, it’s incredibly delicious. Plus, you can forget about guilty feelings, since the pancake contains only a tiny bit of sugar. Instead you get all the goodies from cherries – like fiber, flavonoids and vitamin C – and some important protein from the quark. Quite awesome, isn’t it :). If you’d like to have it a little bit sweeter, some vanilla ice cream would make a perfect pair with this pancake.

Baking this oven pancake reminded me that I should be doing it more often, using the berries or fruit that are in season. Next time I’m going to involve my 2-year-old in making the oven pancake.

Cherry oven pancake

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Course 30 min or less, Breakfast, Dessert, Snacks
Servings 6 pieces


  • 250 g/ 8.8 oz quark
  • 1,5 dl/ 0.6 cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 dl spelt flour
  • 1 tsp real vanilla powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 10-15 cherries


  • Preheat the oven to 225 Celcius/ 440 Fahrenheit degrees.
  • Pit the cherries and cut into half or quarters. I think it’s easiest if you take a knife and rock it around the entire cherry, as you would an avocado or peach. Twist the fruit into 2 halves to reveal the pit; pop it out and discard it. Then cut into quarters, if you like to have them smaller for your pancake.
  • Whisk all the ingredients except cherries together in a bowl.
  • Line a baking pan with parchment paper or grease the pan with butter.
  • Pour the batter into the pan and sprinkle the cherries on top.
  • Gently put the pan in the oven. Cook it first 10 minutes in 225 Celcius/ 440 Fahrenheit degrees and after that lower the temperature to 200 Celcius/ 390 Fahrenheit degrees and cook for another 15 minutes.
  • Let the pancake cool down a little bit before serving. Serve with whipped cream, fresh berries or ice cream.
