This is soooo good. Yes 2 Tbsp. vanilla extract is correct.

Top Review by Russell Cooks

I didn't rate this because I made some significant changes to the recipe. This is a nice idea, but each layer is so sugary it is overkill to me. I found that the flavors just didn't blend like they do in a black forest cake. However, I brought this to a german class and got positive feedback. So for those who could stand to OD on sugar, chocolate chips, and cherries, go for it, otherwise, skip dessert.
