I am very fortunate to have worked in Germany; spending time in the Black Forest region I have fond memories of this classic cake. I have put my own twist to this great combination of cherries, chocolate and vanilla, I hope you enjoy.

Chocolate Semi Freddo:

Tim: I also have lived in the black forest.
We were in Lahr for six years.
Loved it!

My first landlady made black forest cake.
She would soak the cake layers in kirsch until they were almost falling apart, let them sit until they were just moist and finish the cake.
What a punch! Especially since I don't drink.
But it was sooo very good!
I will definitely give yours a try.
