Foret noire cake recipe

The Foret noire (Black forest) cake is a classic in France.
I made it with my twist. Easy, fast and incredibly yummy!
Duncan Hines Triple chocolate mix makes it amazing!
Follow the directions on box.

I used a bunt cake but you can use any container.
The Foret noire is usually a round cake.

I use Pam 100% organic spray. make sure you spray well.

When cooked, let it cool a little bit and place in freezer for 30 minutes. it helps when cutting the cake.

I cut the cake in 2. Added a layer of whip cream and Some Maraschino Cherries.

In France, we don't use heavy icing. It always has to be light and creamy. Not too sugary.
I used Dr Oetker Mousse supreme in Dark chocolate Truffle.
Follow the direction and cool in fridge before using.

I used it as an icing and then i shaved some Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate on top with more cherries.

Super good!

I have great giveaways on my side bar. Don't miss them!

Okay, I gained weight looking at the pictures. It looks wonderful! When I'm off my diet I'll have to give it a try. 15 more pounds to go. :)
