Cooking time




  • 125 g butter

  • 1 dl sugar

  • 1 rkl gingerbread icing

  • 3 yolk (the egg whites go into the meringue foam)

  • 1,5 dl Virtasalmen Viljatuote's gluten-free bun flour mix

  • 2tspbaking powder

  • 1 dl milk

  • Marenki
  • 3 protein

  • 1,5 dl sugar

  • Stuffing
  • 4 dl whipping cream

  • 300 g milk cream

  • 200 g vanilla cream cheese

  • 2 tl vanilla sugar

  • On top of the filling and for decoration
  • gingerbread crumbs

  • frozen/dry lingonberries

  • quince sauce (ready-made from the refrigerator or homemade)


  • Mix together the gluten-free bun flour mix, baking powder and gingerbread spice.
  • Beat the soft butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the egg yolks one by one, beating well.
  • Then add the dry ingredients and milk to the foam.
  • Prepare the meringue by whipping the egg whites into a froth. Then add the sugar and whip the foam until stiff.
  • Spread the base dough on a baking sheet on a baking sheet. Carefully spread the meringue mixture over the base dough so that the dough does not mix.
  • Bake at 175 degrees for about 25 minutes (until the meringue is nicely browned).
  • Prepare the filling by whipping the cream.
  • Then add the quark, cream cheese and sugar and mix well until smooth.
  • Cut the cooled gluten-free brita cake in half and spread the filling on one half. Sprinkle lingonberries over the filling, drizzle some warmed caramel over the top and finish with gingerbread crumbs. Even if lingonberries aren't your favourite, don't skimp on them! The tartness of the lingonberries is perfect for this cake.
  • Lift the second cake plate on top and repeat the steps from the previous step.


  1. The recipes are certainly tasty BUT for diabetics how would I put such a pie where you really need to reduce the amount of fat and sugar. And doesn't olive oil make it tasty - or does it and with Acave syrup the yolks still come off.....Could you try there( careful question here )

    1. Hello,

      Olive oil and other oils make delicious cakes if the recipe does not call for the butter to be foamed. However, olive oil has a strong flavour, so it's best to combine it with a stronger flavour, such as spices or lemon.

      Many of our recipes are actually a little lighter (containing max 1 dl sugar and margarine of your choice) and are therefore suitable for a diabetic diet when eaten in moderation, according to the Diabetes Federation. Unfortunately, the Brita cake doesn't make it because of the meringue :/
