I made this Gluten Free Black Forest Layer Cake for my husbands birthday last Tuesday! It was the first time I’ve made and tasted a Black forest cake before and I have to say I absolutely loved it. Oh and so did the birthday boy!!
The chocolate cakes were filled with white chocolate ganache and cherry jam and a dark chocolate icing to top finish off the cake. I realised I didn’t make quite enough ganache or cherry jam, so I made sure to double the quantities in the recipe below so you don’t run out!
I know this isn’t one of my quickest or simplest recipes, so I will forgive you if you don’t go out and make it this weekend. I’d seriously consider it for your next birthday celebration though, it was so divine. You might also want to read a little bit about why birthdays are so important in my family. I shared it on my blog last year with a recipe for Gluten Free Chocolate and Salted Caramel Layer Cake. Just excuse the fact the cake wasn’t very even shaped or flat.
Anyway, I must say thanks to Delicious magazine for the original recipe. I adapted it to be gluten free with a few less steps. Thanks for stopping by!
