Black Forest gateau. One of Germany’s most famous exports.

The Black Forest is home to the darkest, sweetest temptation in the whole of Germany. Whether it was first created in Radolfzell in 1915 or in a café in Tübingen in the 1930s, the Black Forest gateau definitely hails from Baden-Württemberg. And has gone on to conquer the world. Its key ingredients are Black Forest kirsch, which gives the cake its inimitable flavour, and of course cherries. As for how many cherries – that's up to the individual baker.
