We were fortunate enough to find these squash in the market. We had not heard of them before. The name is evocative, it ignites the imagination. These Black Forest squash sparked a number of ideas: from pairing them with black forest ham to using the squash puree in a black forest cake. It turns out that our Black Forest squash are a smaller variety of Kabocha squash, one we are quite familiar with from out days at Clio. So soup is a definite possibility, or risotto, John Thorne's squash tian, black forest waffles, squash steamed pudding with black treacle sauce or black forest lasagna. The possiblities are endless,     Years Past September 7, 2012 September 7, 2011 September 7, 2010 September 7, 2009 September 7, 2008 September 7, 2007 September 7, 2005

Growing up, one of the cakes that I loved the most was Black Forest cake. I guess I was always tempted by the dark and chocolate cake topped with cream. Plus, Black Forest cake always looks so pretty with so many cherries that I just want to have a bite of the cake, and the cherries! Now think of the same deliciousness, in the form of cupcakes. That’s exactly what I have for you today: Black Forest cupcakes! I saw this recipe and photos on my contributor’s Facebook page and I just had to ask her to share the Black Forest Cupcakes recipe here with us. The texture of this cupcake is lighter compared to the regular Black Forest Cake. It’s perfect as an afternoon tea, with a cup of coffee or tea. I especially love the hidden treasure inside the cupcake, which is the cherry pie filling and the fresh cherry. The top is fluffy whipped cream and shredded chocolate. Anyway,...

Asia is crazy for cute food. Think Totoro donuts and Hello Kitty bento boxes. "Kawaii" cooking, or cute food cooking, took off in Japan a few years ago. To show affection for their children, mothers can spend hours turning a bento lunch into the splitting image of Pokemon. Like all things J-pop, the trend quickly spread to Hong Kong. Now, locals can take cute cooking classes and buy panda-shaped cookies at Kee Wah Bakery. So, who does it better: Hong Kong or Tokyo? In this epic showdown, reminiscent of Bruce Lee vs the dojo in "Fists of Fury" (well, maybe not quite), we present 15 contestants from each city. It's up to you to decide who takes the cake. For more about kawaii cooking, check out La Carmina's recipe book "Cute Yummy Time."At Princess Cake House, a Hong Kong-based cute cooking school, students learn to make panda bread with dyed and layered dough. The head instructor made a Rilakkuma bear using chocolate bread and white icing. A bakery offers a black forest cake shaped like Kuromi, evil nemesis of Sanrio character My Melody.

This is a very tossed-together Black Forest Cake, or, as I like to say when I am too lazy to bring out the piping bag and tips, it’s “rustic.” It has all the components of the classic German torte, but without the fuss. Layers of dark chocolate cake are sandwiched with fresh whipped cream and sweet cherries spiked with kirschwasser (“cherry water,” or clear sour cherry brandy). These flavors are among the most celebrated combinations in the history of pastry making — and for good reason. This swoon-worthy homemade version of the cake is super-fast and easy to put together. Rustic Black Forest Cake Recipe (aka Cherry Chocolate Cake) Yield: 12 servings Prep Time: 30 minutes Cook Time: 35 minutes Inactive Prep Time: 1 hour Total Time: 2 hours 5 minutes (includes cooling times) Skill: Easy Ingredients: Chocolate Cake Unsalted butter, for greasing 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 cup cocoa powder (it doesn’t seem to make a difference if you use natural or Dutch process), sift if lumpy 1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda 3/4 teaspoon salt 1 large egg 1 egg white 3/4 cup buttermilk 1/3 cup vegetable oil 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 cup hot coffee 1/4 cup rum or brandy (if you opt out of the booze, use more coffee) Cherry Filling and Topping 3 cups fresh or frozen sweet dark cherries, pitted (if you are using fresh cherries, add 1/4 cup water) 2 tablespoons kirschwasser or brandy 1/4 cup sugar 1 tablespoon cornstarch Whipped Cream 2 cups whipping cream 1/4 cup powdered sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and prepare two 9-inch round cake pans with parchment paper and butter. Combine the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt together in a large bowl and whisk until combined, set aside. Whisk together eggs, buttermilk, oil and vanilla until well combined. Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients and whisk until smooth. Slowly add the hot coffee and rum to the batter and whisk until totally blended and smooth, about 2 minutes. The batter will be quite runny. Divide the batter into the prepared pans and bake for about 25 minutes or until set when tested with a toothpick. Cool completely. Place the cherries and kirsch in a saucepot. Whisk together the sugar and cornstarch in a small bowl, then add to the cherries. Add the sugar mixture to the cherries and cook over low heat until the cherries come to a boil and the liquid thickens and is transparent, about 10 minutes. If you are using fresh cherries, you will want to cook them until the fruit is slightly tender. Transfer to a bowl and cool to room temperature. To assemble the cake: Whip the cream, powdered sugar and vanilla to stiff peaks. Place one layer of the cake on a serving platter. Spread half of the whipped cream over the top. Distribute half the cherries over the cream. Repeat with the next layers of cake, cream and cherries. Serve the cake immediately or place it in the refrigerator. Click here for the printable recipe.
