Black Forest Cake II
This was the first cake I've ever made from scratch and it turned out fantastic! Granted, my kitchen was a battlefield of flour and cocoa powder, but it eventually turned out decent. I made this for my husband's birthday and was grumbling the whole time because I'm not a huge fan of chocolate and cherries (so I was expecting to not get to eat the cake I spent so long on!) and I was insanely surprised at how much I liked this. I didn't add half as much Kirsch as it was calling for because I panicked while looking at the 1/2 cup full, but I can see how easily it all can be added and will definitely add more for the next cake. All I could find was Maraschino cherries and that's all I used. I added the cherry juice from that into the frosting and probably would have doubled the frosting recipe next time because I was running out (I always have frosting issues on cakes). The taste of this cake is addicting! It's not a sickeningly sweet cake, so after eating a slice, you don't feel like your stomach is exploding, so that was a major plus for both me and my husband. I will definitely use this recipe for whenever I want to make a Black Forest cake. I don't even see a reason to try other recipes because I enjoyed this one so much.
