Simple And Delicious Black Forest Step Cake

by Rehan S. Branding
Black Forest Cake is a typical German cake that consists of layers of chocolate cake, whipping cream, cherries, and, very notably, kirschwasser, a clear liqueur derived from sour cherries. It's a delectable cake that's ideal for this moment of the year when fresh cherries are plentiful.



•    sugar- half cup or 104 grammes
•    cornstarch- four tablespoons
•    Cherry liqueur or water- one-fourth bowl or 60 ml
•    Three bowls or 510 grams sliced and cut cherries into quarters


•    One and a three-fourth bowl or 228 grammes of maida or all-purpose flour
•    Two bowls or 414 grammes of sugar
•    Three-fourth bowl cocoa
•    Two plus one-fourth teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda
•    a half teaspoon of baking powder
•    One teaspoon of salt
•    1 quart or 240 mL of milk
•    Vegetable oil - half bowl or 120 ml
•    One plus half teaspoon extract de vanilla
•    Two eggs, big
•    240 ml or one bowl of lukewarm water


•    Three plus three-fourth bowl or 900ml of chilled heavy whipped cream
•    Two bowls or 230 grammes of powdered sugar
•    Three plus one-fourth teaspoon extract de Vanille


•    Bittersweet chocolate pieces, 3 ounces or half bowl or 86g
•    heavy whipped cream- one-fourth bowl or 60ml


1. In a moderate skillet over a moderate flame, whisk together the cornstarch, sugar, and water or liqueur to produce the cherry combination. Heat till the sugar has melted and the mixture is moist.

2. Whisk in the cherries to evenly coat them in the sugar combination. Heat the combination till the cherries lighten and release their juices.

3. Whenever the cherries are fleshy and the juice has thickened, turn off the heat. Transfer the combination into a separate basin and set it aside to cool.

4. To create the cake tiers, prepare the oven to 176 degrees Celcius or 350 degrees F and coat three 8 inches cake pans with nonstick cooking spray and lines the bottoms with baking parchment.

5. In a huge mixer container, mix the maida, cocoa powder, sugar, bicarbonate of soda, salt, and baking powder. Remove from the equation.

6. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the vegetable oil, milk, vanilla essence, as well as eggs.

7. Blend the dry and wet ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat until completely blended.

8. Slowly pour in the lukewarm water and blend on slow speed till thoroughly blended.

9. Pour the batter equally into the buttered cake pans and cook for 22 to 25 mins, or till a toothpick inserted into the centre pulls out with a few wet crumbs.

10. Start by removing the cakes from the oven and set them aside to rest for a few minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack to finish cooling.

11. In a big mixing bowl, combine the heavy whipped cream, sugar powder, and vanilla essence to form the whipped cream. Beat until firm peaks form using the whisking blade.

12. To stack the cake, start by removing the domes off the heads of the cakes with a big sharp blade so they are level.

13. Using a serving dish or a plastic cake circle, arrange the initial cake layer.

14. Using some of the whipping creams, draw a dam along the exterior of the cake tier.

15. In the centre of the dam, distribute three-fourths to one bowl of the cherry combination on the upper edge of the cake. The cake would absorb the juices.

16. Apply a coating of beaten cream across the rest of the dam and smooth it out evenly.

17. Repeat this procedure 14 through 16 with the next layer of cake.

18. Finally, place the 3rd cake layer on the highest point.

19. Using heavy cream, cover the surface and edges of the cake. Place the black forest step cake in the fridge to chill.
