Last week, I had great pleasure in making this Black Forest cake for a special birthday. This cake comes from Germany: Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte, which means “Black Forest cherry torte”.
Traditionally, Black Forest cake consists of many layers of light chocolate génoise (soaked in Kirsch), whipped cream and cherries.
However I made this one with raspberries, and it even has a name: “Vosgienne“.
Fist layer: chocolate génoise, whipped cream and raspberries.
After 3 more layers, whipped cream every where…
Garnish with shaved chocolate, whipped cream and fresh raspberries: it is so nice!
Then enjoy after few hours in the fridge!
Surprisingly, this cake is very light…
