Chef Stephane’s blackforest cake is made according to his mother’s recipe, and what a banger of a dessert it is. Let all notions of “old-fashioned” and “boring” fall to the wayside, because this cake is all sorts of chocolatey, moist and boozy at the same time, with the gentle sweetness of cherries running through each bite. I haven’t had a blackforest cake in years, but this I'll have again for sure.
