Black Forest Cake

Black Forest Cake

For letter "B," I share to you the Black Forest Cake, a very delicious cake that originated in Germany, also called "Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte," literally meaning, "Black Forest Cherry Torte.

These cakes were served to us when I, together with my sister and our cousin Marjorie attended the FOOD Kitchen Series held at the Enderun Colleges. It was chef Andreas Gillar who demonstrated to us how to bake the Black Forest Cake (the European Way), and of course, the best part after watching him work his wonders was to have a taste of it. I can describe this in one word: heavenly.

Anyway, this cake consisted of layers of chocolate cake soaked in Kirschwasser (cherry wine), chocolate mousse, whipped cream, and topped with maraschino cherries. Chef Gillar let us (participants) smell the Kirschwasser, and at first I thought the cake would have the strong cherry alcohol taste, but it certainly wasn't, in fact, it was the Kirschwasser that made it really good, because it went well with the chocolate cake and the cream.

I will share the recipe of this cake (provided by Enderun Colleges) in the coming days, stay tuned for that.

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
