Spiked Black Forest Cake


Hey everyone! First blog post ever…cheers! And no celebration is complete without cake. Like really, really good cake.


So I got out my mixing bowl and began to make my go-to Chocolate Cake. I look in the freezer for butter, and I see the can of orange peels. My mind immediately goes to the Lindt chocolate bars with oh-so-wonderful strips of orange peel. Ah, orange peel would be lovely in this cake. I would name it “Spiked Black Forest…” that’s it! It needs a liqueur to draw out the orange, mingling it with the chocolate. And so it came to be. 


This cake is so good. A bit fancier tasting than your typical chocolate cake, with almost zero extra effort. Works for me! How about the recipe now?
