אין על עוגת היער השחור בעולם מבחינתי. זאת לגמרי ה-עוגה שלי. קלאסיקה מנצחת של דובדבנים, שוקולד וקצפת. 🍒 . . #bakingvlog #shortcakes #blackforestcake #פוריו #פוריוישראל #אפייה #עוגות #עוגתשכבות

The most classic and my most favorite cake of all- Black Forest Cake. This layer cake is made of cream, cherries and chocolate. You can make it in many variations and not necessarily the way demonstrated here. Please note that the sugar syrup player a critical role in this cake, therefore I recommend to add some cherries liqueur in it (either Kirsch or Vishniak). Designing the sides of the cake was possible with a pattern cake comb.

Preparation:

Cherry Jam:

In a small bowl, mix together the cornstarch and water to combine.

In a small saucepan, cook cherries and sugar on low heat, until the sugar dissolves completely. Blend this mixture using an immersion blender or a food processor to a smooth puree without any lumps (it is recommended to strain the puree, but not mandatory).

Return the puree back to the saucepan, slightly cook it and add in the cornstarch mixture. Mix it well while cooking on low-medium heat, until the mixture thickens. Allow to cool down completely before use.

Cake assembly instructions:

  1. Spread 30g of the jam on op of the sponge, in a way that reaches about 3cm far from the edge of the cake.
  2. Spread 70g insert cream and cover it with another cake sheet.
  3. Keep stacking all the sheets in similar manner. Use the remaining insert cream to crumb coat the cake.
  4. Ice and decorate as shown in the photo, or per your personal preference.
