Easy and Delicious Black Forest Torte

Today I am posting the last recipe to celebrate National Cherry Month and I would like to share with you one of my favorite desserts: Black Forest Cake. It can be time consuming to make certain desserts from scratch but when you use the help of a cake mix, you can pull it off quickly. I selected a delicious version of the traditional Black Forest cake that you will love!


Black Forest Torte:

1 pkg of dark chocolate fudge cake mix
2 1/2 cups whipping cream
2 1/2 tbsp confectioners' sugar
1 (21 oz) can cherry pie filling

Preheat oven to 375ºF. Grease and flour two 8-inch round cake pans.

Prepare, bake and cool cake according to package directions.

Beat whipping cream in a large bowl until soft peaks form. Add sugar gradually.

To assemble, place one cake layer on serving plate. Spread two-thirds cherry pie filling on cake to within 1/2-inch of edge. Spread 1.5 cups whipped cream mixture over cherry pie filling. Top with second cake layer. Frost sides and top with remaining whipped cream mixture. Spread remaining cherry pie filling on top to within 1-inch of edge. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
