    Beerawecka, the name of this cake doesn't try hard to conceal its not-so-secret ingredients! "Beera" means "pear", and "Wecka" can be translated as "bread", so its name leaves little to the imagination regarding its ingredients for anyone familiar with the Alsace dialect…

    This speciality is one of our region's typical and unique desserts, particularly enjoyed during end-of-year festivities.

    A surprising appearance

    Our traditional cake is unique in that it's "non-risen": Its fine layer of batter binds the ingredients together, hence its "compact" form. However, don't be fooled by the appearance of this somewhat uncouth-looking loaf! While it may look surprising at first, it conceals a true treasure that will be revealed as you cut the first slice…

    Don't judge a Beerawecka by its exterior…

    The Beerawecka boasts an incredible abundance of ingredients, requiring meticulous preparation by our pâtissiers. An abundance of dried fruit: Pears, raisins, figs, apricots and plums are combined with cherries, candied orange, almonds and chopped nuts. Then, the batter is flavoured with Williams Pear brandy and kirsch, a traditional brandy distilled with cherries from our Alsace orchards. A cake containing all the flavours of Alsace!
