Black Forest Trifle

If you love Black Forest Cake then this trifle is for you! This dessert has all the components of a black forest cake - the chocolate cake, cherries, whipped cream, chocolate shavings and it is also soaked with kirsch liqueur or the cherry syrup. This is a delightful dessert which can be served as individual servings after dinner or in parties. 

Preparation time 20 mins | Setting time 30 mins | Makes about 3 glasses

Here are some chocolate cake recipes and brownie recipes.  Use any of these recipes or use any left over chocolate cakes or brownies. I used some left over chocolate cake.

  • Chocolate cake or chocolate brownies - About 2 Cups
  • Cherries - 1/2 Cup
  • Cherry syrup/grape juice/chocolate syrup - 1/2 cup
  • Whipping Cream - 1 Cup
  • Chocolate shavings

1. Bake the brownies/cake or use any left over chocolate cake. Crumble the cake and set aside. Chop the cherries, leaving a few for garnish.
2. Whip the cream until stiff peaks. 

3. Place a small handful of crumbled cake pieces at the bottom of the serving dish.
4. Drizzle the cherry syrup over the cake crumbs.
5. Place a large dollop of whipped cream. You can pipe it in or spoon it in.
6. Place a spoonful of cherries over this layer.

7. Repeat the process starting with the crumbled cake.
8. Cover and refrigerate for the flavors to mingle.
9. Just before serving, garnish with chocolate shavings and cherries.

2. Instead of cherry syrup, you can use grape juice or chocolate syrup too.

Until next time,
