German Black Forest Cake...mmmm...

Black Forest Cake is one of, those luscious and beautiful cakes that is bound to impress the crowd. I first made it for a family reunion many years ago, and now make it for many special occasions. Wouldn't it be a lovely dessert for a birthday, Mother's Day or Father's Day?

My first German Black Forest Cake was a huge success with our family who ranked it right up there with other family favorites like German Sauerbraten and Rouladin. The only pitfall of making Black Forest Cake once is that you'll be asked to make it for every occasion in the future.

The Black Forest Cake is constructed out of layers of chocolate and yellow cakes, filled with whipped cream, chocolate mouse and cherry fillings and decorated with whipped cream and chocolate swirls. Mmmmm...!

In this hub, I will give you the wonderful scratch recipe for this cake as well as some short cuts if you wish to save time. Enjoy!

Never Fear - There's an Easy Version of Black Forest Cake at the Bottom of the Page

For those who would like to try an easier version, I'm also including a simpler recipe for a delicious Easy Black Forest Cake. I often make this version for my family, and they love it almost as much as the original version which is reserved for special occasions. In the easy version, I cheat by using a chocolate cake mix and I skip the yellow cake layer.

Shopping List for Black Forest Cake Ingredients:

The shopping list is for baking the large German Black Forest Cake from scratch.

  • Eggs - 7
  • Butter - 3/4 cup
  • Semi sweet chocolate - 3 oz.
  • Unsweetened Cocoa - 3/4 cup
  • Heavy whipping cream - 3-4 cups
  • Milk - 9 oz.
  • Cherry pie filling - 3 cans
  • 2 cups confectioners sugar
  • Chocolate candy bar
  • All Purpose Flour
  • Vanilla
  • Baking Powder
  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • Kirsch for flavoring (optional)

Aunt Stephie's German Black Forest Cake

My nieces and nephews recognize this cake when they see it at a family gathering and say, "Oh, it's Aunt Stephie's Black Forest Cake!" Hence, the name. But you can call it German Black Forest Cake if you wish!

The recipe below is for a large, four layer cake that is perfect for a crowd. Start with a chocolate cake and a yellow cake baked in 9" X 13" pans. After the cakes are baked and cooled, freeze them for several hours before splitting each cake with a very sharp knife or an electric knife. I find that the electric knife makes a nicer cut with fewer crumbs.

Making this cake is time consuming because of the multiple fillings used in the traditional version, but the end result is worth the effort. This cake makes 20 to 25 servings if you plan your cutting carefully.

Fillings for Black Forest Cake -Prepare Separately

While cakes are chilling in the freezer, prepare Cherry Filling, Chocolate Mouse Filling, Butter Cream Icing and Whipped Cream in separate bowls.

  • Cherry Filling
    1 can cherry pie filling plus 1 T. Kirsch

  • Chocolate Mouse Filling
    3 oz. semi sweet chocolate
    3 T. Kirsch (optional)
    1 egg well beaten
    1 cup heavy whipping cream
    2 T. sugar
    Instructions for Chocolate Mouse Filling:
    Melt chocolate in the top of a double boiler set over boiling water. Stir until smooth, then slowly stir in 1 well-beaten egg. Whip 1 cup of whipping cream with the sugar and fold into the chocolate mixture. Chill for 2 hours.

  • Butter Cream Icing
    Make a butter cream icing with 1 cup of confectioners sugar and 1/4 cup soft butter creamed together with 2 tbs. cream or milk. Add more liquid to make it spreading consistency.

  • Whipped Cream
    Beat the other cup of heavy cream with 2 T. of sugar until it forms soft peaks. Chill until ready to put cake together.

  • Chocolate Curls for Cake Decoration
    1 bar of milk or dark chocolate at room temperature. With a sharp knife, shave off thin curls of chocolate and sprinkle on top of whipped cream for decorations.

Steps for Assembling the large 9" X 13" Black Forest Cake:

  1. Split the frozen chocolate cake and the yellow cake lengthwise into two layers so that you have 4 thin layers of cake. Round layers can be split without freezing, but large oblong layers will hold together better if they're frozen first. It's also easier to work with the layers as you put them together if you freeze first.
  2. First layer - place yellow cake layer cut side down on cake plate and cover top with thin layer of butter cream icing. With butter cream icing make a 1/2 inch ridge along top edge of the layer and another 1/2" ridge about 3 inches inside the layer. Fill between ridges with cherry pie filling. T
  3. Second layer - place chocolate layer cut side down on top of yellow layer. cover with chilled chocolate mouse filling.
  4. Third layer - Place second yellow cake layer on top of chocolate mouse filling. Top with a 1 1/2 cups of whipped cream.
  5. Fourth layer - Place last chocolate layer cut side down on top of whipped cream. Frost sides of cake with whipped cream. Top can be whipped cream or topped with cherry pie filling and garnished along the edges with whipped cream swirls. Decorate with Maraschino cherries and chocolate curls. Refrigerate until serving.
  6. Because of the height of this cake, it will serve quite a few people. If you cut slices about an inch wide by 4.5 inches long, you can get 20-26 slices out of this cake. This cake will freeze well, so make ahead when you need it for a special occasion.


Shopping List for Easy Black Forest Cake

2 cans cherry pie filling
1 box chocolate cake mix
3 eggs
1 pint heavy cream for whipping
2 cups confectioners sugar
1 box instant chocolate pudding
1 1/2 cups milk
Kirsch or cherry liquor for additional flavoring (optional)

Quick Black Forest Cake- The Easy Version

While nothing will match the original made-from-scratch cake recipe, this quicker version is also delicious and impressive. Because it's so much easier to make, you can have it more often without having to dedicate a day to baking. Make it for your family or even take it to the potluck dinner!

Instructions Easy Black Forest Cake

1 box chocolate cake mix
3 eggs
1 can cherry pie filling

Mix cake mix, eggs and 1 can of cherry pie filling together using an electric mixer. Pour into 2 flour lined 9 inch cake pans and bake for 35-40 minutes at 350°F. Cool cake on racks until room temperature.

Prepare fillings in separate bowls:

Butter Cream Icing:
Make a butter cream icing with 1 cup of confectioners sugar and 1/4 cup soft butter creamed together with 2 tbs. cream or milk. Add more liquid to make it spreading consistency.

Chocolate Filling:
Using a whisk or electric mixer mix instant pudding mix with 1 1/2 cups cold milk.

Whipped Cream:

Whip 1 cup heavy cream with 1/4 cup of sugar until cream holds soft peaks.


Steps for Assembling the Easy Black Forest Cake

  1. Set first layer on cake plate with rounded top side down. Spread with the chocolate filling.
  2. Place second layer on top with top side up (this keeps the center of the cake level).
  3. Spread a thin coat of butter cream icing on the top of the second layer. This will keep the cherry filling from soaking into the cake and making it soggy.
  4. Spoon cherries onto the top of the cake keeping about 3/4 from the edge.
  5. Frost side of cake with a thick layer of whipped cream. Add a rim of whipped cream around the top edge of the cake up to the cherries.
  6. If you wish, dab a spoonful of whipped cream in the center of the cherries. Garnish with grated chocolate or chocolate curls if you have chocolate on hand.

Hi Stephanie, Black forest cake is one of my favourites, but I have never attempted to make one, I have always bought a frozen one, I am sure a home made version would be superior!
