Black Forest Cake

Now a days I have got interest in baking cakes, it all started when Christmas was coming near and wanted to make Christmas cake, so I did make few cakes and it turned out really well but here am gonna write down the recipe of Black-forest cake which I tried and came out really well, it is very easy to make. Here goes the recipe below :

Ingredients for cake :

  • Maida(Flour)-1cup
  • Iced Sugar-1cup
  • Baking powder-1tsp
  • Baking soda-1 tsp
  • Cocoa powder-3 tsp
  • Eggs-2 no.
  • Vanilla-2tsp
  • Salt- a small pinch
  • Butter-50 gm

Ingredients for Cake Cream :

  • Amul Cream-200gm
  • Vanilla-2 tsp
  • Iced Sugar-5-6 tsp (As per your taste)

1. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. . In another bowl put eggs and beat it properly then add butter and vanilla and beat it properly and then add this mixture to the large bowl and mix well.

2. Put some salt in the cooker and put the stand to keep the cake pan. Now grease the cake pan with butter and pour the mixture in the pan and close the cooker. Initially keep the flame in high for 2-3 min and then keep in low flame for 35 min.

3. After 35 min check with wooden toothpick if the cake is baked properly, if it come out smoothly then it is fully baked. Now allow it to cool down fully and remove from the pan and place in the flat plate.

4. Now for making cake cream for icing we have to beat thick cream( Amul is what I use) for 10 min with the help of an electric beater. Add sugar and vanilla essence and beat 5 more min and see whether the cream has got enough thick to be used as icing! Beat it till it becomes thick and sticks to beater without falling from it. Keep it in fridge for 2 hours.
5.With long knife, split each cake layer horizontally in half. Put some sugar water and then spread the cream in between and then keep the top layer of cake and then again put some sugar water and then do the icing with rest of the cream. Put cherries on top of cake for decoration and sprinkle powdered chocolate on top of the cake. Yummy black forest cake is ready.
