Martina’s Fantasy Blueberry Cake

Martina’s Fantasy Blueberry Cake

This recipe was gifted to me by a beautiful woman from Bechtheim, Germany. Martina’s delicious “Fantasy Blueberry Cake” was served when I interviewed her daughters, Janine and Jasmin. I followed her instructions precisely and was left with a beautiful tender cake topped with billows of quark cream and blueberries soaked in quince jelly. Heaven. Not a crumb was left on plates! If you would like the backstory on the day this cake was served you can read it HERE. Thank you, Martina
