Black currant pie

Author: Aušra


This year I try to make something new out of currant because last year I had no time for them. And the first try – a pie with black currants. I took it to my work and my colleagues enjoyed it a lot. So after a few days I baked it again to my hubby because I knew he will love it too. I wasn’t wrong 🙂 So believe me – this pie with a creamy black currant cream is really worth your time!

Black currant pie

Time needed:
Yields: 12 servings
Calories: 202 kcal / serving


  • For the crust:
  • 200 g flour
  • 100 g butter
  • pinch salt
  • 1-2 tbsps. sugar
  • 4-5 tbsps. very cold water
  • For the filling:
  • 200 g black currants
  • 200 g boiled water
  • 150 g icing sugar or white sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 100 ml cream, 35% fat, or sour cream, 30% fat


  • Start from the filling. Pour water over black currants and blend in a blender. Then strain juice off through a sieve or cheesecloth.
  • Add icing sugar or sugar (if you’re in hurry – use icing sugar, if not – simple sugar) and mix till it melts.
  • Beat in eggs and mix.
  • In a blender bowl put flour, salt, sugar and butter. Blend until crumbs forms.
  • Then add very cold water and blend for a few seconds more. Then take out the dough and knead a little bit.
  • Take 26 cm diameter baking form (I suggest to use with removable bottom form, because mine wasn’t and in some places it was hard to take out the pie). Line with a dough baking form bottom and sides. Put in a freezer for 20 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 200°C.
  • Take out of the freezer dough, poke with a fork, then cover with foil and pour over it some weights (beans, rice, peas or etc.).
  • Put form in an oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  • While crust is baking, pour cream in your filling and mix.
  • Then pour it to the prebaked pie crust. And put the pie in a oven for 35 minutes more, just lower the heat to 170°C.
  • Let the pie to cool completely. Then dust with an icing sugar and garnish with black currants.
  • Just taste and enjoy!

Jogurtinis keksas su serbentų kremu

Yoghurt cake with currant cream

Maybe this is the last recipe with currants this year. This time with white currants, because I just love them. I decided to use them in this cake, although you can use black or red currants. First time I did everything by the recipe – and currant seeds were annoying. Second time boiled currants I strained through the mesh – but then cream wasn’t so refreshing. So the next time I will go the easy way and leave seeds 🙂

Purpurinis limonadas

Purple lemonade

I was always interested in how children make lemonade that I saw in the old american movies. So I was very eager to try to make it by myself. And we still have some berries in our garden, so I made this lemonade. The result was very refreshing. Just it was too strong for us, so when we watered-down in half-and-half we got very light dring with a mild taste of lemon and black currants.

Muffins with berries

It was really impulsive baking. I saw them in a magazine for parents in a section “Baking together”. 🙂 Together? So I asked if my kids want to bake something and they happily agreed. So I just measured all ingredients in purpose that my kids were not bored, and they started to work. The result came out perfect – smell was fantastic, and the taste was remarkable – berries gave some refreshing sourness and banana gave moisture. Even next day they were very good and left over disappeared too quickly. So I’m thinking to repeat them very soon again.
