There is not one version of the recipe for this famous cake. There are simple recipes, there are recipes complex. Of course, as in the case of many popular desserts, few can say that the Black Forest cake is the recipe of which it is used - it is the most original and the present. But a win-win combination of chocolate, cream and cherry will make a cake for any recipe - successful and tasty. Ingredients: For biscuit:

  • 6 eggs
  • 300 g (2.5 tbsp.) Of sugar
  • 200 g of butter or quality margarine
  • 2 bags of baking powder
  • 2 cups (300 g) of flour
  • 5 tablespoons cocoa

For the interlayer

  • 400 g of cherries without pits (fresh or frozen)
  • 0.5 liters of thick cream for whipping (35%)
  • 1 tbsp. Sahara
  • 100 g of dark chocolate
  • ¼ tbsp. milk


  • Cherry liqueur for impregnation (can be replaced with other alcohol)
  • Grated chocolate for decoration

Preparation: A few hours before the preparation (or on the eve), the cherry should be soaked in vodka, cognac or other strong alcohol. If the cake is eaten by children, this can not be done. Products for biscuit split in two into two portions, because the biscuits will be baked in two batches. From the half of the products knead the dough. To do this, whip 3 eggs with sugar. Pour melted and cooled butter (margarine) to them. Stir thoroughly and add the flour mixed with cocoa and baking powder. The dough should turn out to be sparse, the consistency of sour cream. Shape with removable sides grease, pour the dough into it and smooth it. Oven to warm up to 180C and bake a biscuit for 20-30 minutes at medium height. Since the chocolate biscuit, that is dark, you need to carefully monitor that it is not burned, because it is more difficult to determine, than with ordinary biscuit. Perhaps it will take less time. Do not open the oven often, otherwise there is a risk that the biscuit will fall due to cold air. While the first biscuit in the oven, make a dough for the second portion. Having delivered the first, send it to the oven next. Ready biscuit (check with a toothpick) to get from the oven, cool a little in the form. Get out of shape, and while warm - cut into two cakes. You can do this with a sharp knife, fishing line, silk thread or even dental floss. Lubricate the cakes with impregnation. (It can be impregnated with the same alcohol used to soak the cherries.) After removing the cherries from it, you can add a little sugar to the dishes and lightly heat it to dissolve the sugar.) When the second biscuit is ready, just get it, cool it, cut it and Lubricate with impregnation. In total there should be four cakes. Beat cream with sugar until fluffy. Chocolate melt with milk in a water bath or simply in a microwave. Proceed to assemble the cake. On the first cake (it is better to take the one that came out the most uneven, under the weight of the rest it will "fix") to lay out a third of the chocolate mass, then put a part of the whipped cream (about a fifth of the total volume). Spread evenly on the cream 1/3 or quarter of the cherries. Cover with the following cork. Repeat the procedure with chocolate, cream and cherries. Also miss the third cake. Cover the cake with the last, fourth cake. If the sides of the cake turned out to be uneven, you need to straighten them with a sharp knife. Do not discard the scraps, but cut them finely and use them to decorate the cake. Cover the top cake and sides with the remaining cream. Garnish the top of the cake with cherries and grated chocolate. Ready to leave the cake for several hours or overnight in the refrigerator, so that the cakes are impregnated with cream.
