AJRimmer Advent Day 20

I’m trying to think if I’ve ever had black forest cake. I kinda don’t think I have and I feel like it’s something I should fix. Time to find the perfect recipe.
I’m getting chocolate in each sip. It’s doesn’t have the richness I’d expect with chocolate, but it does seem balanced otherwise. The cherry comes out in the finish. It is faint, but it’s there. I agree with the other reviews that the flavor could be more intense. I don’t think it would hold up to adding cream as is and after reading a few recipes for BFC, a cream element seems like part of the deal. Still, it was a fun tea to start my morning with and try a cup of!

I never seem to make cakes, it’s just too much to eat. Black forest cupcakes would be good though!

Dustin

That’s a good idea!

AJRimmer

I completely agree, Cameron! I always just make a half recipe so I have time to eat it before it gets stale.

Cameron B.

Do you make just one layer and then split it or in a differently sized cake tin?

AJRimmer

Smaller tin! I always round up on the eggs when halving so it turns out nice and moist.

Cameron B.

Yummmm. I just got a new baking cookbook so I’ll have to make some baby cakes! What size tin do you usually use for a half recipe?

AJRimmer

The amount of batter ends up different with each recipe, so it really depends. I know my last one ended up in a 9×9, but it’s sometimes bigger.

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
