BLACK FOREST - 12 servings - Chocolate, Cream Cheese Swirl, Cherries and Kirsch
The Black Forest Gateau is probably Germany’s most famous contribution to the cake world, and if you’ve ever tasted this dessert then no doubt you will herald it an iconic classic. Typically, Black Forest Gateau consists of several layers of chocolate cake, with cherry and kirsch filling, with lashings of whipped cream between each layer.
A common misconception is that the gateau takes its name from the region of its origin: the Black Forest (Schwarzwald) mountain range in south-western Germany, whereas, the Black Forest Gateau actually takes its name from a distinctive and fiery kirsch alcohol made from Black Forest sour cherries, known as Schwarzwälder Kirsch or Kirsch Wasser: cherry firewater.
This gorgeous forest-look-alike cake is inspired from the traditional recipe and features an exquisite German chocolate dough, delicate cream cheese swirl and fresh cherries drowned in kirsch! This is a desert for adults, but it can be ordered alcohol free for kids.
