Black Forest Gateau ( Cake )
55 mins (prep 30, cooking 25)
7 ingredients
8-10 servings
This traditional German recipe is nothing like the commercial cakes on sale these days - the ones that are cloyingly sweet with that "slick" icing. This is the real thing (and note that the sponge contains no flour). While the ingredients and directions may look out of order, I've tried to arrange them to make better use of time. If you have a stand mixer, this would be a great time to pull it out!
