Black Forest Cheesecake

I am a sucker for a Black Forest Cake. I don’t know what it is about the mixture of chocolate cake, cherries and whipped cream, but I have loved it ever since I was a little kid! I don’t know if you’ve noticed this though, Black Forest Cake isn’t as easy to find as it used to be. Restaurants are all into farm to table, and “locally grown!” Sometimes I’m not in the mood for a poached pear (honestly, I’m never in the mood for a poached pear), I just want something decidedly unhealthy!

A couple of years ago, my amazing friend Dixie went all out and made me a Black Forest Cake … from scratch! It was amazing, but since she has moved far away, I have been left to my own devices! I decided to make a Black Forest Cheesecake for when Candice came over to take pictures. The picture is hers, and the cake is mine. I would normally try to be a little humble about this, but the cake was amazing! I didn’t make my own cherry pie filling, and I didn’t even use the whipped cream that we had on hand. It’s extremely rich, so I suggest making it for a crowd. I can’t be responsible for you eating a whole cheesecake!

For this particular cheesecake I used Oreos instead of the cookie crumbs. I liked the texture of the crust with the cream filling. Also, make sure to beat the mixture after each egg, the texture of the batter can go weird very quickly! I also used the best cherry pie filling I could find. It was in a glass jar, which I think helped, because it didn’t have any sort of metallic taste, which you can get with a can.

  1. This sounds fabulous! I’m also a sucker for black forest cake, although I’m not a fan of all the whipped cream they decorate it with. This cheesecake is just perfect for me. Thanks!
