I adored black forest gateaux in the 70s and loved trifle so decided I would fuse the two. You can make it all from scratch but also easy to substitute ready made goods if you don't have the inclination. The ingredients are split to enable you to decide at each 'layer'.
Traditional style Black Forest Cake
This is my take on the traditional German Lebkuchen, a Christmas mainstay. These slices are great to have to hand for unexpected guests during the festive season.
A classic marbled German cake that looks like what it says on the box - the Danube's waves. Flavoured with cherries, vanilla cream and chocolate covering, this is much easier to make than you might think.
The classic chocolate and cherry cream cake! Chocolate sponge cake is soaked in Kirsch syrup, then layered with buttercream, cherries and cream. It's super-indulgent and perfect for special occasions.
A delicious and traditional German Christmas traybake that tastes even better after several days. However, this never happens in my family because they disappear in no time unless I hide them.
A simple, yet delicious no-bake dessert that everyone will love. Butter biscuits are layered with a chocolate cream, refrigerated until set, then served. NOTE: This recipe contains raw eggs.
Easy to make, and delicious. This iced chocolate drink is my favourite dessert. During summer, if it's warm and you're looking for something cool, trust me, this is the best drink you can make at home without wasting a penny on juices or other stuff!
mini kinder eggs with hidden gummy bears in side and the best thing is that the cake is chocolate and has syrup all inside its beautiful i made this for my course work on German food chocolate and kinder/gummy bears are the best and the time depends on how much servings you want that is the same for the measurements
Very pretty cinnamon biscuits, sandwiched together with jam and dipped in chocolate.
Delicious biscuits with walnuts and chocolate, that are half-dipped into more chocolate. Perfect for Christmas. They are so delicious and melt in your mouth.
These chocolate dipped macaroons originate from the German city of Lübeck, popular for its marzipan.
This recipe was shown to me whilst I worked in an area of Germany called the Kaisersthul, a volcanic outcrop in the Black forrest (Schwartzwald) region. It is so rich and delicious - you just will not beleive it! It takes a little time, but its worth it.
