Black Forest

Black Forest Recipe

A great classic !!!! But frankly, impossible to leave my site without this recipe. Me, I like candied cherries a lot, with this black forest recipe, for my recipe I chose cherries in brandy (house of course). The softness and the chocolate flavor delight all lovers. But it is above all a poisoned gift from my brother Kiki, because I was going to eat at his place and he took the opportunity to ask me to make him a black forest, well let’s see…. !!! Good for my sponge cake, I did not choose the easy solution, but on the other hand I am satisfied with the result. Of course you can vary the flavor by using more or less alcoholic syrup from the cherries; at home this time, there were no children, I admit that my hand was a bit heavy !! in any case I loved my black forest. Of course I used the cherries of Papi René (who makes us a jar of his beautiful sour cherries every year).
