Black Forest Gâteau !! Blog Anniversary Special

Finally I made up my mind.Here is Black Forest cake from my kitchen,which I believe most of you will be fond of.Black forest cake is the layered chocolate cake filled and decorated with cherries and cream.If you prepare this German dessert in an authentic way,you may have to add Kirsch,a colorless fruit brandy which is made from double distillation of Morellos.In my recipe anyway,I don’t use alcohol and so mine is poor sugar syrup.You may as well use the syrup from tinned cherries.This is to wet and further smoothen the chocolate layers.

Thank you once again for supporting me in a way I never imagined…Enjoy your cake slice !

Ingredients

6 eggs
1 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup all purpose flour/maida
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup unsalted,melted butter


 For the Filling & Topping

3-4 tbsp sugar syrup/cherry syrup/Kirsch
3 cups whipping cream
3 tbsp icing sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/2-1 cup stoned cherries

To decorate

grated chocolate
chocolate curls/pieces
handful of cherrries,stones

Method

Prehat the oven to 180 degree.Prepare three 19cm/7 in sandwich cake tins.Or you may bake the cake as one and slice to three or two,whichever you may choose.This is completely your choice.In a large bowl whisk the eggs with sugar and vanilla essence till pale and thick.To this sift the flour and cocoa and fold lightly and evenly.Pour the melted butter and keep folding.If you are baking as three,you may shift the mixture to three tins equally.Otherwise bake it as one.Bake for 13-15 minutes and leave it to cool on a wire rack.Now comes the assembling part.For this,first prick the surface of each cake and sprinkle the sugar syrup.In another large bowl start whipping the cream adding icing sugar and vanilla essence.Now take the first cake layer and make a thick layer of whipped cream and top with cherries.Bring the second layer and repeat the process.After the final layer,we have to decorate the cake.Spread the remaining cream all over the cake.Press grated chocolate over the sides and decorate with the chocolate pieces and cherries.Enjoy !
