Black Forest Pound Cake with Cherry Sauce


My dear husband of thirty two years celebrated his birthday this past weekend so I decided to fix something delicious for dessert.

This is the Black Forest Pound Cake with Cherry Sauce from page 120 of the October 2012 Southern Living. If you don’t already know I will tell you that the best recipes in the world come from this magazine. I have prepared their cover girl cakes from the December issues for several holiday events. My son has prepared the Christmas morning pastries they feature for years and my daughter has found treasures in their pages to add to the holiday noshing.

One of my favorite contemporary artists is Wayne Thiebaud. Here is his version of chocolate cake in woodcut form.

A masterpiece.
