Black forest cake, la Forêt noire

Last week, I had great pleasure in making this Black Forest cake for a special birthday. This cake comes from Germany: Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte, which meansBlack 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…

I promise!
