Black Forest Cake
Cherry Cream Filling
Allow eggs to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, grease a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Line bottom of pan with parchment paper; grease and lightly flour paper. Set pan aside. In a small bowl stir together flour, 1/4 cup cocoa powder, the baking soda and salt; set aside.Advertisement
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large bowl beat eggs with an electric mixer on high speed for 5 minutes. Gradually add granulated sugar (see Tips), beating until thick and lemon colored. Fold in flour mixture. Spread batter evenly into prepared pan.
Bake about 15 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched. Immediately loosen edges of cake from pan and turn cake out onto a towel sprinkled with unsweetened cocoa powder. Slowly peel off parchment paper. Starting from a short side, roll up towel and cake into a spiral. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour. Meanwhile, prepare Cherry Cream Filling.
In a small mixing bowl beat 1/2 cup tub-style cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add 1/2 cup frozen whipped dessert topping, thawed; beat on low speed until just combined. Fold in another 1/2 cup frozen whipped dessert topping, thawed. Drain 2/3 cup maraschino cherries; remove stems and pat cherries dry. Chop cherries and fold into cream cheese mixture.
Unroll cake; remove towel. Spread cake with Cherry Cream Filling to within 1 inch of edges. Roll up cake and filling into a spiral. Trim ends. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 2 to 24 hours before serving. If desired, just before serving, drizzle whole cake with ice cream topping and garnish with cherries.
