This beautiful cake recipe is a 100 year old treasure and a keeper! Reeni of Cinnamon Girl discovered this recipe in an old McCall's cookbook published in 1910, and she too fell in love with this fluffy, moist, easy-to-prepare cake.
Black Forest Cherry Cake, or Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte, is a classic! The trick is to find a recipe that's authentic, because it's not a sticky-sweet dessert. Try this recipe out--it's as close as you can get without a trip to your German bakery! Just remember to start a day ahead to soak the cherries overnight!
