Times ago we already told you about the favorite cakes of grandpa ... one was grandma's Frankfurt Crown Cake and the other her Black Forest Cake.
Although we already baked it often each time we forgot to put our recipe to the blog. Sometimes it's crazy ... you do bake a cake for several times and do not think in so important things ;-).
However, today we are ready to show you or cake! The only difference is that grandma baked it round and we decided to do it as a rectangular version so that everybody can cut slices of the wanted size ...
Ingredients for a cake springform (37x24 cm):
210 g dark couverture chocolate
110 g butter
9 egg yolk
270 g sugar
9 egg white
150 g all purpose flour
75 g cornstarch
3 tsp baking powder
and for the filling and topping:
2 glasses cherries (not dripped off, approx. 680 g each)
2 sachet red cake glaze
20-30 ml cherry brandy (if wanted ...)
500 ml creme
2 sachets vanilla sugar
2 sachets whipping creme stiffener
50 g grated chocolate
If somebody does not have such a big form to bake our cake, just take a half of our recipe and use a usual round spring form.
Maybe our recipe and our pictures could inspire you to bake our cake also for you and your families or friends.
If you also have a cake that never should be missing on you own birthday party, please let us know what cake it is. We would be glad to hear from your own favorites ;-).
So far we wish a great time while baking our black forest cake ...
