Easy Gluten Free Black Forrest Cake

Making a gluten free Black Forrest Cake is easy using the Well and Good Mud Cake Mix.

This recipe uses two mixes to make a four-layered masterpiece. If that’s too much, just use one mix and halve the other ingredients.

  • 60 ml Kirsch liqueur
  • 1/3 Cup Sugar
  • 4 tsp Corn flour
