I was recently listening to Jerome K Herome’s ‘Three Men on the Bummel’ audio book, when they got to the Black Forest with all of its berries and fruits I just wanted Black Forest Gateau. I have always adored it but have always found it too complicated to make. Nowadays everything has to be gluten-free for me, but that’s OK, I love linseed as an alternative and it’s healthier. This dessert can be made at the drop of a hat and it comes out like the best chocolate Black Forest Gateau you could ask for.
This version is a super healthy pudding and absolutely scrummy. It is also gluten-free and contains no saturated fats so suitable for the Budwig Diet.
We also have a completely vegan alternative.
