SCHWARTZWALD TORTE or 'Black Forest Cherry Torte'
|2 c||heavy whipping cream|
|1/4 c||confectioners' sugar|
|shaved chocolate (i use ghiradelli chocolate)|
I like to think of this as the BEST of German cakes & tortes.
Takes a little more time to make, but well worth it for a special dessert. I made this for my grandmother once years ago and I think she could have ate the whole thing. She loved her chocolate.
I made Sauerbraten for her that day too. I just remember that I did not get my meat tender enough, but she still said it was excellent.
Otherwise the cake saved the day. It was perfect and always is perfect.
This recipe is from an old cookbook that I purchased from Mader's Restaurant back in 1981. Mader's is a German Restaurant in Milwaukee and has the best German food!
NOTE: I bake my cakes at 325 so they baked more level and even. This requires longer baking time.
