  German Black Forest Cake

  Black forest gateau(奶油蛋糕) is a chocolate layer cake, heavy with cherries and swathed(困绕,裹) in loads of whipped cream. The sour cherries and sweet chocolate are so good together that one can understand why this has become one of the most desired cakes world-wide.

  Historians believe it originated in the late 16th century in the Black Forest Region, which is a popular tourist place in Germany with dense forests and beautiful high lands. Black forest region is known for its abundant (as earlier it was a custom for newly marrieds to plant a cherry tree) and beautiful cherry trees, which were said to be an inspiration for the black forest cake. The name, Black Forest, evokes darkness and mystery coming from the romantic German concept of forest-loneliness. During this era, chocolate was first integrated into cakes and cookies. Combine these cherries with the German's love of chocolate, and you have this wonderful chocolate confection with cream and cherries.

  There are many other ideas on how the cake originally got its name. Some historians say that it is possible that the cake got its name from the traditional costume worn by women in the Black Forest Region. The black dress is the dark chocolate cake, the white shirt with Balloon puffy(胀大的,喘息的) sleeves are the whipped cream, the red pompoms are the cherries, and the black undulating lace veil shielding the young women's eyes are represented by the chocolate curls(卷发).

  The typical black forest cake contains several layers of chocolate cake, with oodles of whipped cream and cherries in each layer, further decorated with additional whipped cream, chocolate shavings and cherries. Also, in traditional black forest cakes, kirsch, which is a clear colorless fruit brandy which is made from double distillation of morellos is added. Today, other kinds of liquors like rum are used instead of kirsch(樱桃白兰地), or a lot of times, black forest cake is made without any alcohol.

  So, are you already craving for it? Then go on and forget counting calories and simply indulge(沦落,满意)!

  Pennies from Granny

  We had moved from Cairo to Mt. Vernon, Illinois, away from my grandmother when I was eight years old. I missed her terribly. I was told I was her favorite grandchild; she was my favorite "Granny." She was my Father's mother.

  Two years later my mother and father separated and they were soon divorced. I felt as if my world was falling apart. My heart ached for that part of me that was slipping away. Mother must have sensed my longing, for she would take my little brother and me back to visit my Granny on occasions, even after the divorce.

  I was always aware Granny loved us. It was something you could feel with your heart, even when your world was turned upside down.

  She didn't live in a fancy house or have expensive things, but I never noticed; I just knew she loved me and I loved her back.

  We had lived, for a time, next door to her and grandpa in a duplex(二倍的,内蒙古导游词,双重的) while my father was away during World War II.

  Granny had never had very much in the way of money or material things. But it was the little things she gave me that had always mattered. Things like letting me dip my fingers in the sugar bowl, which was always sitting on her table or the coffee she let me sip from her cup. She allowed me to sit on top of her kitchen table as I partook of those privileges.

  Granny took the time to explain the function of her weather vane, hanging on the wall, which predicted the upcoming weather. How that little wooden boy and girl knew what door to come out of, when it was going to rain, amazed me. But Granny understood.

  She also had a vinegar cruet that sat high on a shelf that was beautiful, in my eyes; I asked if I could have it someday. It was given to me in a box after her funeral. She remembered; love is like that.

  I used to spend a lot of time with Granny when we lived in Cairo, next door to her and grandpa, in the duplex. But times and things had changed. Grandpa had died; we lived a hundred miles away, and dad, her youngest son, my daddy, no longer lived with us. I didn't get to see dad much, and I don't know if Granny got to see him very often either. But, he was her son, and I knew she loved him. Love is like that; it can see past the pain.

  Though she didn't have much, neither did we, but she did something for my brother, Tommie and me. I will always remember; she saved her pennies in a glass jar. I am sure Granny could have used those pennies herself but she saved them to give us when we came to visit. Because I was the oldest I was in charge of dividing the pennies equally between my brother and me.

  "One for you, one for me," I would repeat until the jar was empty.

  I don't remember how much we collected on our visits, nor was the amount important. It was the idea that she remembered us, and cared about us, when we were away from her.
