300. Black Forest Cake is rich, creamy and the subtle cherry flavor blended with cocoa are perfectly pared.This recipe was time consuming but the steps were very easy to follow.

The Joy of Baking site has a great how-to video which takes you step by step through the recipe from start to finish. The written recipe can be found here: Black Forest Cake Here are pictures of my process.
