Good Afternoon Foodies,
I wanted this retro dessert for sometime now and I managed to have some last night. I treated myself after working so hard this week and my weight was the lowest it has been for years! I couldn’t wait to tuck in.
Tesco Black Forest Gateau
”Chocolate sponge layered with cream mousse and cherry sauce, decorated with Morello cherries in a cherry sauce and dark chocolate flakes.
Our frozen Black Forest Gateau which serves 8 and defrosts in 3 hours is a party table favourite and perfect after dinner treat. With three layers of chocolate sponge separated by cream mousse and tart cherry sauce, this classic is decorated with juicy Morello cherries, cherry sauce and a sprinkling of dark chocolate flakes."
I did have to wait three hours for this to defrost at room temperature. Then I put it in the fridge because the way the cream was looking, it looked like the gateau would melt in a short amount of time. I cut myself 1/4 of the cake. It might seem like a lot, but I can handle it and once I started to eat it, I was glad I didn’t cut it smaller. The cream round the outside seemed quite foamy and light and there wasn’t much flavour to it like I was expecting. I was expecting a rich, dairy cream taste. Neither taste or texture was there. The cherries too sated a bit sour and wishy washy. I was hoping they were going to be a rich, deep, sweet but tart cherry taste, but it wasn’t. The cherries were juicy though, but that was all I liked about them. The chocolate sponge was light too and you could see the layers of spume and cream. There wasn’t much of a chocolatey taste. Disappointed!
Now I know why this cake was £2. It tasted like a cheap cake and that is exactly what I got. I think I’m going to swerve this cake for a long time. Maybe next time I want one, I’ll go to a proper cake shop or bakery. I didn’t have anymore of it. It went in the bin.
