Egg less Black Forest Cake

Easy Egg less Black Forest Cake:- 
Preparation Time:-30 minutes
Baking time:- 35 to 40 minutes
Serves:- 10
Hi my dear followers and visitors,here my first  egg less black forest cake and using milkmaid or condensed milk. Before this i have tried once but it was not up to my expectations so this time i have done some experiments and it turned out pretty well.This time i have tried this on my younger brothers birthday, he enjoyed the cake digitally.;), i mean, i emailed him the cake piece with lots of love and wishes.And he gave me a compliment of a Master Chef in return, and that is a lot to me. My brothers birthday was just after Valentines Day, and on the Valentine Day my dear valentine was fasting,so i baked this cake next day,so there are two reasons behind making this cake. After searching about how this cake got its name i came to know that the cake is not directly named after Black Forest mountain in southwestern Germany but instead from the specialty liquor of that Region Kirschwasser which has a distinctive cherry pit flavour. And this Liquor is traditionally used in Germany for making this cake, some recipes use Rum for the flavour,specially in Australia. I have not used any alcohol. But still the cake tastes good. I have replaced the alcohol with the Soda Water and cherry juice. For layering i used whipped cream and glazed cherries and frozen pitted cherries. And for decoration i used some grated chocolate. This is a very simple and easy way i feel of making the best Black Forest Cake.So here is the recipe.
