Does anyone have a recipe for this? (In English or German) It tastes great! Mmmmmm...

It sounds great, I love German cooking :mrgreen:

The first thing you need to know about the black forest cherry gateau is that you need at least one litre of cream to make it...yes, that's right...one litre!!! I guess that's why most people can only eat one piece at a time-no wonder really. I have to admit that I have never tried this recipe before, but I'm sure it works. Okay, here we go: For the chocolate sponge you need: 3-4 eggs 70 gramms of normal flour 50 gramms of corn flour 8 gramms of baking powder 30 gramms of cocoa 25 gramms of melted butter 130 gramms castor sugar For the filling you need: 1 litre of cream 100 gramms of icing sugar 50 gramms of castor sugar 350 gramms of grated chocolate a little bit of water and about 50 ml of cherry For the topping you need: 40 gramms of castor sugar 15 ml of lemon juice 800 gramms of pitted black or red cherries

Has anyone tried it yet? :D

I'd like to try it, but first I would have to translate some of those ingredients into Canadian! I'm not sure what "castor sugar" is, for example. I do admit that there are many bakeries and restaurants that offer this cake, and I do tend to indulge myself on occasion. But I've never made one myself. I'm going to be in Germany in May, and I'm hoping to run into a bakery that will sell me a piece or two.

Hi there, I'm sure you will have no problems finding a bakery or a Konditorei ( a special kind of bakery that has a wider range of sweet things, like cakes and pastry as well as bread and bread rolls) that sells "Schwarzwälderkirschtorte" as well as a lot of other delicious things. I'm curious to know what you think of German "Vollkornbrot", which is wholemeal bread. It usually has a lot of seeds in it and is very healthy and delicious. However most tourists find it stale and hard and don't like it, but it is actually supposed to be like that. I think you can use normal sugar as well. I have to admit that I still haven't tries it. Shame on me! :oops:

So that's what that bread was! I was in Cologne and St. Georgan last week. The breakfasts that the hotels provided had "Vollkornbrot," but until now I didn't know what to call it. I thought it was delicous! During this trip I purchased Rocket German, and just started this weekend. I started working for a German company last month, so I'm sure that I will have plenty of opportunities to use my new skills. I did find most people would speak English when I asked. One person said "nien," and then told me something that I think was I should speak German when in Germany. While not the most polite thing to say, I do think he had a point. I know many people here in the USA feel that everyone here should speak English.
