Looking for bakery for black forest cake
Where can I find the best black forest cake in the Chicagoland area? This can be in the city or in the suburbs.
I am also interested in a good black forest cake recipe which uses kirschwasser.
You'll find them at bakeries that specialize in European desserts. Here are places that make them:
Lutz, in Ravenswood on the North Side; you can see a photo on their website (where it even mentions kirschwasser as an ingredient): www.chicago-bakery.com/store/comersus...
Dinkel's, in Lakeview on the North Side, also has a photo and also mentions the kirschwasser: www.dinkels.com/specialtytorte
Austrian Bakery, in Lincoln Park on the North Side, mentions the kirschwasser but doesn't have a photo on their website: www.austrianbakery.com/speciality.html
Schlegl's, in Lincolnwood, mentions the kirschwasser, no photo: www.schlegls.com/menu.htm
Rolf's, in Lincolnwood: www.rolfspatisserie.com/cms/european_...
Bennison's, in Evanston, too: www.bennisonscakes.com/tortes.html
Here are two other bakeries that also specialize in European desserts; they don't mention the black forest cake on their website but it's quite possible that they make them too:
Gerhard's, in Lake Forest: www.gerhardsdesserts.com
Ambrosia, in Barrington: www.discoverambrosia.com
Call ahead to order or to make sure they have one already made.
