Light Black Forest Cake

Hello there ! How are you today ?

Today, I would like to share with you another cake recipe. Recently I decided to try a new one and I realized we had a lot of cherry jam, so I thought of using some for and went for a black forest cake. However, I chose to make a lighter one than usual, healthier one. So, let me share the recipe I came up with you, hope you like it. 🙂

Let’s get started !

You’ll need for the sponge cake part:

  • 6 eggs
  • 100g of dark chocolate
  • 190g of sugar
  • 190g of flour
  • baking powder
  • 75g of unsalted butter

Mix all the ingredients together and bake for 25-30 minutes at 180°C in the preheated oven.

Let the cake cool down and prepare the icing. You’ll need, feel free to adjust the quantities, as this is the basis “recipe for icing” I use, usually I will do some more and some less depending on the size of the cake I’m making:

  • 360g of icing sugar
  • 90g of butter
  • 30g of cocoa powder
  • 60mL of milk

This time, I also added some red coloring powder to the mixing.

Cut the cake in two parts in the length. Between these two pieces of cake, spread two cherry jam jars and create kinda of a sandwich. Put it in the fridge for 15 minutes. Then, spread the icing on top of the cake (more beautifully than I did 😉, I’m the worst at doing a great a job when it comes to decorate a cake).

Store the cake in the fridge until serving and after serving.

Enjoy !

That’s all for today’s recipe, I hope you like it. Thank you for passing by and reading my blog.

I’ll talk to you soon in  a next post.

Until then, take care of yourself ❤
