Mix the berries with the Birnbrot spices and the Amaretto, cover and steep for about 30 mins. Beat the butter, sugar and half the ice cream until light and creamy. Crush the toasted flaked almonds, stir into the flour.

Shape: On a surface lightly dusted with flour, roll out the dough to approx. 30 x 45 cm. Coat the dough with the liquid from the steeped berries. Top with the almond filling then the berries. Loosely roll up the dough, starting from the narrow end. Transfer to the prepared tin with the sealed edge facing down. Coat with the remaining egg. Scatter over the almonds. Make several diagonal incisions approx. 3 cm deep. Leave to rise again for approx. 30 mins.
