  1. Hi aarthi. I am happy to say that am ur regular blog follower. Love all ur cake recipies and trying at home. Is there is any substitute for cherry sugar syrup. Shall we use normal sugar syrup ??

  2. @Sindhuja.Ryes u can use normal sugar syrup

  3. Hi Aarthi, just wanted to know how much sugar and water is needed to make sugar syrup. Thanks.

  4. hai aarthi i have doubt why you are not using curd in black forest cake ?

  5. Hi Aarthi,

    Thats a nice recipe. I just wanted to check if I could replicated this and bake in microwave. You microwave cake is a little small. So please suggest what will work better. using ingredients of this recipe and baking in microwave or should i double the ingredients of the microwave recipe? If we double ingredients of microwave recipe then for how much time will be have to bake the cake? For how much time should i bake it in the microwave if i double the ingredients? Thanks

  6. @Molshree Gattaniif you have convection mode you can make

  7. Can you tell me what cream is that? Is it just Amul fresh cream which has been beaten well? How to get that thickness? I felt my cream will be runny, so cant assemble the cake.

    1. AMul cream cannot be made thick for some reason. I use whipping cream powder or frozen whipping cream

    2. Can I use eno powder instead of baking soda ?

  8. Hi Aarthi Ji, can I know in which mode u baked the cake? Can I bake it in convection plus micro option in my IFB microwave oven?! Pls reply

    1. I have a OTG oven, i baked in bake mode. You have to bake in convection mode

    2. Hi aarthi, One quick question, If I bake the cake one day earlier will it be dry for the next day? Let me know how I should go ahead so that the cake stays moist.

  9. I made this cake today and it turned out simply awesome! I am amazed at myself 🙂

    Thank you for all the tips. The basic chocolate cake was simply superb. As I did not have two same pans, I just baked in one Pyrex bowl, and made the cake 4 inches high, and sliced it horizontally.

    If we just follow every step in this recipe and read carefully, it will surely turn out superb!

  10. Can i use dark chocolate powder, instead of cocoa powder ?

  11. yes pls i wanto knw this too
