Happy New Year everyone. Let GOD shower his blessings abundantly on us the following days.  Its the time when we take new resolutions. A time when we think we ought to get everything right and of course the time to break our resolutions too. :)

In this post I am sharing with you how to make a Black Forest Cake. I have tried to put a step-by-step presentation of the same. Hope this helps.

Black Forest Cake



Morello Cherries in syrup – 700 ml jar
granulated white sugar- 1/4 cup

Step 2.  In a bowl, sift the flour, salt and cocoa powder.

Step 3. In a heatproof bowl whisk the eggs with sugar.

Step 5.  Beat the mixture on high speed until thick for about 5 minutes until it falls in a ribbon-like pattern.

Step 8.  Melt the butter.

Step 10.  Now, gently mix it with the rest of the chocolate mix.


Step 11.   Butter a 9 inch  round cake pan and line the bottom of pan with parchment  paper.  Pour into your pan, smoothing the top. Bake for about 20 – 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.


Step 12. Using a sharp knife, cut the cake, horizontally, into two layers.  Turn over the top layer of the cake  and place on your serving plate.


Step 13.  Place 1 cup  of the  cherry syrup in a small saucepan, along with the sugar, and heat until sugar has dissolved.

Step 16.  Brush the cut-side of second cake layer with 1/4 cup  syrup. Place cut-side down on top of the cherries, gently pressing to compact.  Spread the remaining cream over top and sides of cake. Place  cream in a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip and pipe rosettes on top of cake.
