Black Forrest Cookie Cake Reicpe

Another recipe from Be A Fun Mum contributor, the Wonderful Amanda from Food Before 5.
(If you haven’t checked out her book, you should! It’s so mum friendly!) 

This is the ultimate chocolate ripple cake but with a BIG difference – cherries and jam! Whack it all together and you have an absolutely delicious dessert. It doesn’t need to be perfectly assembled as it will all be hidden under the mountain of cream. You can also make a smaller cake by using only 1 packet of biscuits but if you are making for a group of people – use 2 packets.  Enjoy!
