Black Forest Torte
Total TimePrep: 35 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling
Second Dee's rating- this recipe became the de-facto birthday cake in my family some time in the 70's- it was called simply Forest Torte. My mom put it in our family recipe book several years ago and I started making it for my kids- although I could tell that there was something missing in the recipe. Tomorrow is my birthday and my kids are making this for me, so I found this recipe to compare- in my mom's transcription, the flour and sugar amounts are switched, the baking soda is gone, and the baking powder is transcribed as baking soda! We also don't put the pecans in although they were probably in the OG recipe but Mom kept them out when we were kids.
Please people, do not rate a recipe you did not bother to prepare and taste. You're skewing the ratings for a fabulous Chocolate Torte. Post your comment and do not rate. I agree, this recipe is not for a traditional Black Forest Torte containing cherries. My Great Aunt first made this for me in 1976. This Torte became the most requested birthday cake in our family. I lost this recipe during a move 2 years ago. I was thankful someone shared this recipe. This cake stores well in the refrigerator.
How can it be a Black Forest cake without any cherries? This would just be a chocolate torte. It looks scrumptious, though!

The recipe sounds good but has a very importen ingredient missing it has to have cherries in the middle , The original torte has no chcolate in the middle. Thank You
After having this at a friends house, I fell in love with it! It is me and my sisters favorite recipe for cake! The cream filling levels out the chocolate, this cake is simply scrumptious! Now I always ask for this for my birthday! Thanks for the great recipies TOH!
