Black Forest cake is a classic favourite with a few simple elements: chocolate cake, whipped cream, cherries and chocolate. Although the traditional German black forest cake recipe (forest torte) contains Kirsch, a cherry liquor, it is common nowadays to find black forest cakes without alcohol.

Be sure to use QL Omega eggs for this black forest cake recipe. They contain 50% less cholesterol than ordinary eggs and taste great. As the name suggests they also contain high levels of Omega 3, which is really important for maintaining a healthy body.

  7. To assemble, drain the cherries thoroughly.
  8. Whip the cream.
