It’s a very scientific process. Next time, we are going to double the number of cherries (2 cans) — as is you don’t get many cherries between the layers in each slice. Will the whipping cream be ok for this? I have tried this cake for last two New years Eve. In order to keep it traditional, I also made a cherry syrup (using kirsch – cherry liqueur) to brush onto the cake layers. I find that I need to bake slightly less time on convection, but wondering if you have a rule of thumb? I’m looking forward to making this recipe. I made this for my family as my husband loves Black Forrest cake. My only question at this stage is whether I should be using the convection oven setting or conventional oven setting? I’ll try doing that as well! I was wondering what your thoughts are on turning this recipe into cupcakes. I hope that helps!

Thank you for all of the wonderful recipes! Excellent cake, and I want to try to actually make it with the FOUR layers next time. If it’s very hot even tempered chocolate would get soft. Hi Liv! Simple. Thanks.will try with frozen cherries first and see. Hi Kai! 2. They are indeed pretty in picture, though. Here’s a site I use as a guideline: http://www.joyofbaking.com/PanSizes.html Baking time will vary slightly. Do I just eliminate the cocoa and hot water? I don’t use a stabilizer in mine and it’s fine for a day or two. Mine are 2″ deep. Our friends joined us for cake and said it was bakery quality. This cake will not keep incredibly long due to the whipped cream. I haven’t used gelatin in whipped cream before but I know people often use it to stabilize the cream. If you’re a Black Forest Cake fan, I hope you try this version! How I wish I shared aome with you. Is yours a sponge that is light, as worried the cream will squash out of the layers?
