Blitz Kuche Blitz Kuche means “lightning cake” because it is so quick to make. Gaye tells us, “This is a parve cake, meaning that it has no dairy so it can be served after a meat meal. It also has no eggs, so your vegan and/or allergic friends will love it!” Serve with Sour Cherry Sauce. 3 Cups flour 2 Cups sugar 2/3 Cup NATURAL COCOA POWDER 1 tsp. (rounded) instant espresso powder 1 TB. baking soda 1 tiny pinch salt 1 tsp. PURE VANILLA EXTRACT 3/4 Cup vegetable oil 1 TB. vinegar (Gaye uses apple cider vinegar, but regular white vinegar works fine) 2 Cups water 2 Cups fresh or frozen pitted sour cherries or use 2 Cups chopped, dried cherries reconstituted in 1 Cup boiling water 2 TB. Kirschwasser (dry cherry brandy), optional—we used regular brandy 1/4 tsp. PENZEYS CINNAMON 1/4 tsp. PURE VANILLA EXTRACT 1-2 TB. cornstarch
