While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Chocolate, cherries and whipped cream, oh, my! - March 28 is National Black Forest Cake Day!
Calling this traditional German dessert a Black Forest cake, which is a cherry torte on steroids, is a lot easier than the original moniker: Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte.
If you're still mystified and/or drooling over what this confection consists of, it's essentially layers of chocolate cake, whipped cream and cherries, with additional whipped cream, cherries and chocolate shavings liberally slathered on top. A tart cherry liqueur is also included in the mixture to amp up the sour cherry flavor.
Make a slightly more streamlined version of Black Forest cake for a supreme treat that will find its way to your dreams. One thing is for sure, this is one forest you'll want to get lost in.
