Red fruit jelly cake

Red fruit jelly thickened with starch or gelatine is an ideal topping for a crispy shortcrust pastry base. Even on a finished fruit crust, Rote Grütze with a little frosting not only looks good. This quick cake tastes good too!

It is up to you and your time frame whether you reach for your own homemade red fruit jelly or just thicken one from the refrigerated section.
