This time I looked at the red and sour redcurrants I had bought to make my melon with red fruits, since I had a lot left, the idea of ​​this very gourmet cake came to mind. It immediately came to mind.

All the flavors blend nicely, the spicy side of the currants is counteracted by the sweet melting of the meringue and the crunch of the sweet dough. A small note of vanilla and almond brings even more sweetness to this cake ^ _ ^
