Sour Cherry Fantans [BBB]

Gretchen Noelle

My love of food was cultivated early on by my family but has come alive while living in Peru. During the 12 years of living in Lima, Peru, I have also enjoyed numerous trips to other areas of the country. Here on Provecho Peru you will find Peruvian recipes in English, American favorites prepared overseas, news about Peruvian Cuisine and interesting tidbits about life in Peru.

    Wow… spreading goodness all around are you? Wonder how sour the sour cherry jam tastes? Looking really good

  3. Mess or no mess, these are absolutely gorgeous! I love how they fan out to reveal that lovely sour cherry jam. I can’t wait to make my own. I’ve never made (or heard of) fantans before. Yum!

    Wonderful!! I adore sour cherry jam and you were brilliant to use it. And I think your fantans look beautiful!

    Hahahahahaha, I love that you kneaded the egg in. I can imagine how sloppy that must have been. I do hope you too were laughing as you kneaded the gloppy mess.

  5. Oh I do love the kneading the egg in! Been there done that! Yep you can make it work … and what fun it is.

    Glorious, yes they look glorious and I do wish I had one now.

    They look so perfect! My muffin pan is still soaking. It may never recover from the jam burning onto it. ;-)

    Ha ha ha you sound like me but oh were these Fantans worth it! And yours look just like mine – exploded – but so beautiful! Absolutely delicious (and sour cherry jam is the only flavor I eat!). Great fantans!

    Gorgeous and messy. Love the way you really see the red cherry jam and the layers. I like mine for breakfast, but with afternoon tea, too. Wish I had one of yours right now!

    These look yummy! I have a jar of salmon berry jam (I have no idea what that is, either)in my pantry just dying to be slathered into these pastries.
