This Black Forest cake is nice and easy to make and is so moist and delicious. I make it for friends for their birthdays but it can be enjoyed on any occasion.

Ingredients (makes 1 cake)

  • 1 packet Chocolate Cake Mix
  • 1 cup Lemonade
  • 2 Tbsp YIAH Black Forest Dukkah
  • 1/2 jar Amarello Cherries
  • 250ml carton Whipping Cream
  • 1 Tbsp YIAH Chocolate Raspberry powder
  • 1/2 Jar Amarello cherries to decorate


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Line a cake tin. Mix the cake mix, lemonade, Black Forest Dukkah and cherries in a bowl all together till mixed in well.
  2. Pour into prepared tin and bake for as long as the cake mix states. Test with a skewer to make sure it is coming out clean before taking out from the oven. Leave to cool.
  3. Meanwhile pour the cream into a bowl and mix through the chocolate raspberry powder then beat with an electric mixer till cream is whipped. Spread cream on top and decorate with remaining cherries and some more Dukkah if desired.


I used a devil foods cake mix which made it even more moist. You could add anything on top of the cake that you desire.

  • black forest dukkah – never heard of it!!!


  • Yum, my favourite!


  • Looked up YIAH and wondering if something else can be used. Will look further into this stuff.


  • Thank you for sharing!!!


  • I don’t know what YIAH is, but black forest is my all time favourite cake, so I will definitely be seeking the ingredients out! Thanks so much for sharing!


  • Looks delicious, but would love to know where to get the YIAH ingredients.


  • Yum, but as some others have said I’ve never heard of Black Forest Dukkah – just the regular dukkah. Can you buy it Coles or Woolies or do you get it in speciality baking shops?


  • Wow what I treat noe to see if I can find the stuff needed for this


  • I’ve never heard of Black Forest Dukkah or the YIAH brand but it’s seriously got me drooling and wanting to buy some!! You had me at cherries with this awesome recipe


  • What an awesome treat.


  • My number 1 cake – this looks so totally fantastic.


  • Yum. This looks delicious. Thanks for sharing.


  • One of my favourite cakes.


  • Oh yum! Happy memories from the 80’s when Mum would often make a black forest cake as a birthday cake :)


  • This looks heavenly. Will make my own cake tho, don’t like packet mixes
