You need 1 jar of sour cherries, 300 grams of flour, 245 grams of sugar, ½ bag of baking powder, 1 pinch of salt, 125 grams of butter, 1 egg, 500 milliliters of milk, 1 cup of crème fraîche and 1 ½ bags of custard powder.
This is how it works: Put the milk in a saucepan and stir in 120 grams of sugar. Mix the pudding powder in a cup with a few tablespoons of milk until smooth. Bring milk to the boil in saucepan. When it boils, remove the pot from the stove and stir in the custard powder mixture. Put the pot back on the hob, bring to the boil and stir vigorously until a creamy pudding has formed. Let it cool completely.

Using your hands, quickly mix the flour, butter, baking powder, remaining sugar, salt and egg into a crumbly dough in a mixing bowl. Set aside a third of it. Line a spring form with baking paper. Press the crumb dough into the mold and draw up a border about two centimeters high on the sides. Prick the base several times with a fork.
The crumbs give the cherry cake a crispy topping
Stir the cooled pudding once with a whisk, stir in the cup of crème fraiche. Spread the finished pudding cream on the base. Drain and drain cherries, then spread evenly over cake. Finally, crumble the remaining crumbs over the cherries.
