Amazing Black Forest Chocolate Cake

Recommended Posts

so i used Ursa's recipe for a black forest chocolate cake, link below, and it turned out wonderfully! was worried as i had a few setbacks-the first cake did not cook through, and collapsed on my kitchen counter while cooling. i just used the outside pieces, which were cooked, and used those to create the middle layer of the cake. i also made quite a mess when i knocked over the blender full of almond meal. thankfully i had some extra almonds in the freezer! also, i didn't use rum extract in my recipe b/c when i went to the store to get ingredients, they only had one brand of extract. i called the company, but they were closed. it was mccormicks...anyone know for future reference whether they use gluten-free caramel color?

i adapted the recipe a bit by using a different recipe for the chocolate cake. that's listed below as well. and instead of cutting off half of the cake, i made cupcakes. those by themselves were delicious!

here's the recipe:

here's the chocolate cake recipe:

Oh Wow! What a wonderful birthday cake. You did a great job....and a belated happy birthday wish to you!

Thanks!

McCormick's is a GREAT company that has a policy of clearly listing any gluten ingredients, so it wouldn't be hidden in caramel coloring, natural flavoring,----all that stuff. If its not on there, its not in there :)

Ok I wasn't sure. I just usually don't go there if I see the words caramel color, since most companies aren't so helpful. But good to know for future reference!
