Black Forest Cake, eggless chocolate sponge cake, whipped cream and cherries layered alternatively.. This time, I used buttermilk(milk+vinegar) as a egg alternative in this cake and the cake came out perfect! In case, you dont get whipping cream, you can use low fat amul cream 25% for making whipped cream. Click Me
