Black Forest Cake

Black Forest Cake is one of the first cakes I learnt after getting married . I remember we didn’t have an oven and our neighbors had a round electric oven . I made the batter and went to their house to bake . Those ovens were portable , but yet I had gone to bake . And this was 40 years back ! Later of course we bought an oven and I used to bake cakes for the kids birthday parties .

With time everything changes . Now I have a huge oven and my friends come over to bake as they can bake loads at one go , but no more kids birthday parties . Anyway this cake was baked for a friend and she loved it .

Black Forest cake is the English name for the German dessert Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte. The Cake consists of several layers of chocolate sponge cake , though I just slit it into two and sandwiched with whipped cream and cherries. The cake is normally decorated with additional whipped cream, maraschino cherries, and chocolate shavings. I like to cook my cherries with some sugar ,syrup from cherries and cornflour for the filling , but I went with the traditional topping of whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
