Black Forest Cake
I haven´t taken any cake decorating course, so my black forest doesn´t look beautiful like others. For the black forest cake , I don´t use margarine or butter. Despite lack of margarine or butter, the cake itself turned out pretty well. I thought, it´s already creamy enough from the mixture of whipped Cream and Mascarpone that are used to cover the cake.
Ingredients for Black Forest Cake:
200 g flour
150 g castor sugar
25 g chocolate powder
1 teaspoon emulsifier (TBM or SP)
25 g milk powder or maizena (Mondamin speisestarke)
directions: Preheat oven to 180°C. Use a mixer with high speed to blend sugar, eggs and emulsifier until the mixture is stiff about 8 - 10 minutes. Sift the chocolate with flour then gently add to the mixture, beat for a few seconds with the lowest speed until thoroughly mixed . Pour the mixture into a tin cake and bake in the oven for 30 minutes then turn the oven down to 150°C for about 10 minutes. Leave the cake to cool before decorating.
