This American favorite makes its appearance every Thanksgiving as a treat enjoyed by young and old. Its history dates back to 17th century England, where the English made quick work to establish it as a suitable pie filling from the pompions that were imported from North America.
Otherwise known as Black Forest Cherry Cake, this Torte is a classic in Germany. It is, however, not likely to have originated in the Black Forest. First appearing as a written recipe in the 1930s, it gained popularity throughout Berlin and eventually became one of the most popular cakes in Germany.
