Do you generally end up ordering Black Forest Cake from the baker’s because you think it takes too long to make? Next time, just bring home (or make by yourself) a chocolate sponge, and you can prepare the Black Forest Cake right in your kitchen and that too within minutes.
The sugar-soaked cake gets a creamy twist and tangy notes from the layer of whipped cream and cherries, while it derives a none-can-refuse-me look from the garnish of chocolate curls and juicy cherries. Go for dark chocolate curls, for additional eye appeal.
Serve this delicious cake on occassions like Christmas , Children's Day , Valentine's Day and Thanksgiving to make them all the more special.
- Combine the sugar and water in a broad non-stick pan and cook on a medium flame for 4 to 5 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
- Remove from the flame and keep aside to cool.
- Place the chocolate cake on a turntable and slice it horizontally into 3 equal layers. Keep aside.
- Place the bottom layer of the chocolate cake on the turntable and soak it with 2 tbsp of the soaking syrup.
- Spread 1 cup of whipped cream evenly on the soaked layer of the cake with the help of a spatula.
- Arrange half of the canned cherries at equal distance over it.
- Repeat the steps 2 to 4 to make 1 more layer on top.
- Finally place the topmost layer of the cake on top and soak it with the remaining soaking syrup.
- Spread the remaining whipped cream evenly on top and at the sides of the cake with the help of a spatula.
- Sprinkle 3/4 cup of the chocolate curls on top of the cake leaving 1 inch from the circumference of the cake.
- Gently pat the remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate curls evenly along the sides of the cake.
