When I was a little girl, I was always intrigued by the story of Hansel and Gretel. I always tried to imagine the types of things they found to eat when they stumbled upon the Witch’s gingerbread house. I envisioned a large, chocolate, Black Forest cake sitting on a graham cracker table with licorice legs. Yum!
Now granted, in my fantasy, the witch wasn’t a witch at all, but rather a sweet little old lady who simply enjoyed making goodies for kids who were out wandering in the deep, dark forest. She would make me Black Forest Cakes all day long and I’d eat them without gaining a pound or getting sick. Wouldn’t that be wonderful? LOL! Now, I make my own Black Forest Cake following this simple recipe, and even though it may make me gain a few pounds if I overindulge, I still eat it anyway.
