Name this cake
When I was a teen the bakery by my house in Brooklyn made this cake that I remember being called a "Black Forest" cake.
But in doing some research I am finding it wasn't a black forest.
The cake consisted of the same chocolate cake and whipped cream as a black forest, but instead of cherry filing, it had fresh bananas and strawberries layered with the cream between the layers.
Has anyone had a cake like the one I'm describing? Do you know the name of the cake? The bakery is no more, and with my birthday coming in a few weeks, I'm feeling nostalgic. Baking this cake is out of the question, I can't bake to save my life!
