Easy Peasy Black Forest Cake

60 mins (prep 25, cooking 35)
10 ingredients
6-8 servings
At 8pm on his birthday, after the shops had shut and after weeks of saying that he didn't care what we ate as long as it involved beer, DB decided that what he REALLY wanted was black forest gateau. Go figure. This isn't really dark or slick enough to be black forest gateau, but it's what I made with what I had in the cupboards, and was pretty quick and easy to do, and involved chocolate, cream and cherries - so after a couple of cans and a lasagne it sufficed! Probably a good recipe for kids who aren't ready for the really rich and bitter flavour of proper BFG.
