When you think of Germany, do you see fairy tale forests and coo coo clocks? That's the Black Forest in the southwest corner of Germany. Plan your trip with our 1 week itinerary in the Black Forest and beyond.
Black Forest Cherry Cake, or Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte, is a classic! The trick is to find a recipe that's authentic, because it's not a sticky-sweet dessert. Try this recipe out--it's as close as you can get without a trip to your German bakery! Just remember to start a day ahead to soak the cherries overnight!
