i have always been a big fan of eggless cake recipes and the chocolaty flavoured black forest cake is my latest addiction. i use to prepare normal chocolate cake for any occasion, but since i learned this simple and easy black forest cake recipe, there was no looking back. unlike other cake recipes, the main thing i like is the moistness within each layer of cake due the cherry syrup applied to each sponge cake. moreover the cherries added at each layer with whipped cream takes this cake recipe to next level.

furthermore, some important tips and suggestions for perfect and moist black forest cake recipe. firstly, in this recipe i have prepared 4 layered sponge cake by sandwiching the whipped cream and cherries. this can be reduced, 2 by preparing only cake and cutting them to 2 halves. secondly, do not apply too much cherry water, or otherwise cake may turn soggy. in addition, the chocolate cake can be prepared and stored in freezer until it is required. lastly, make sure the sponge cakes are brought to room temperature before icing them with whipped cream. otherwise, the cream would melt and would not stick to the cake.

finally, i would like to highlight my other eggless cakes recipes collection from my post. this main includes, eggless plum cake, cup cake, oreo cheese cake, banana bread, sponge cake, mug cake, red velvet mug cake, brownie mug cake and chocolate cake recipe. in addition do visit my other recipes collection board like,

  1. Making cake is so simple after seeing your this recipe. Delicious cake gets ready by this. Thanks alottttttt….

    • I would heavily recommend finest cocoa powder for this recipe. bournivita or dairy milk would contain other ingredients apart from cocoa powder which may imbalance the cake proportions.
