Black Forest (Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte) is a typical Baden cuisine cake and one of the most precious sweets in German cuisine. It is a cake between 25 and 30 cm in diameter, composed of several layers of chocolate sponge cake embedded in kirsch and interspersed with cream and cherry jam. It is covered with whipped cream, chocolate shavings and cherries. I made some changes to make this cake alcohol free. I would say, this is the best black forest cake recipe I ever tried.
