Black Forest Cake

This cake recipe along with photo was shared by Lavanya

Ingredients needed :
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup strong brewed coffee
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method : 

Mix the wet ingredients separately & dry ingredients separately. Now in batches mix the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Keep mixing until the batter is silky. 

Bake at 350F for about 35-40 mins until completely cooked. Poke a tooth pick or knife to check it does not stick to it. Let the cake cool. Cut the top of the cake and now cut the cake into two halves. Make sure the cake is cool.
For frosting, I used ready made frosting :

Be generous with the frosting. First spread the top of lower half of the cake generously with the frosting. If you love arranging with berries, its very creative.
place the upper half of the cake. Now complete the entire cake with frosting. Make sure the frosting is at room temperature. This will help to spread evenly and easily.
Finally decorate with fruits or more frosting/icing :

Green seedless grapes tasted yummy with this cake. Fresh berries also play equally good tasty role.
Let the cake cool in the refrigerator for a while. Give enough time for the frosting to soak well with the cake. 

For this i made sure, I take out 2-3 times from the refrigerator and brought back to room temperature and then refrigerated again. This helped to bring that mild sogginess to the cake which makes the  black forest cake even more yummier.

Hope everyone enjoys the recipe.
