I made this cake for my husband for a German themed office party. It was the hit of the dessert table. Great cake recipe!
This was sooooo good. My husband loves Black Forest Cake and said it was the best he has ever had. Most of the other recipes call for cool whip and I despise it. The real whipped cream was perfect!
I made this cake for my husband's birthday and it turned out really good. I didn't rate this recipe because I made some significant changes. I cut the cake recipe by 1/3 and baked it in a 6" round pan (I wanted a small cake). I then sliced it in 2, and soaked in the syrup as directed. Instead of the buttercream filling, I used the whipped cream topping both as filling and frosting. The result was a very tasty, light, not too rich cake. The cake layers were slightly denser than I would have liked (I sifted the flour), so I would probably make it differently next time. Don't leave out the kirsch, it adds terrific flavor. Thanks for a yummy recipe, UC86!
I brought this to my weekly German Table for a friend's birthday and it was a big hit. I forgot to sift the flour so there turned out to be only two (very dense) layers, but it was still really yummy.
WONDERFUL!!! Made this 2 days ago and its almost gone with just the 2 of us. Delicious cake and the frosting was perfect! I did however cut the sugar in 1/2 for the cake because the syrup gets poured on top. It was perfect for us not too sweet.
I din't use the cake part of the recipe but the rest of it was amazing. I made it for my husband's birthday and everyone was really liked it. And the best part, it was really easy to make.
