Binging with Babish: The Cake from Portal

  • Published on Mar 19, 2019
  • The cake, as they say, is a lie. But this one isn't: a classic black forest gateau, soaked in kirsch and laden with cherries, served entirely without fish-shaped solid waste. Stick around after the show for a sneak peek at "Being with Babish", premiering March 22nd!

    Just wanted to let you guys know I'm hearing y'all loud and clear - very sorry I omitted the original recipe from the game! I was short on time when I shot this last week, and figured it was so full of crazy/toxic ingredients, I should just skip it. I'mma do my best to include accurate renditions in future episodes before I go into the 'Babish' version!

      It’s cool man, I actually enjoy the Babish version, but you did get such a big following by doing the “accurate version first. Also I see you doing big things and your Babishian Empire is growing.

      that's not the issue most ppl had with this, we had an issue with the fact you just made a cake that just looked like the one in the game. You could have just made a normal cake and included "nontoxic" items, there are candies and crackers in the original receipt and even if it ended up tasting bad you often go back and recreate the cake to be edible most of the time anyway, so it felt very much like this episode should be called "How to make a black forest cake."

    If you try a proper kirsh, it's a lot nicer than artificially flavoured kirsh, it has some redness in it too. At least all the kirsh I've had has been like that

    You basically made what is known as, Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte. Even though your recipe basically covers it, i´m pretty sure yours tasted pretty boring overall.
    It´s one of those cakes that can taste okay or amazing if done right. YIt seemed like you halfassed it a bit though.

    hey there! Fun fact, the cake in game is actually originally from a bakery nearby to Valve HQ in Bellevue, Washington. The devs at Valve loved it so much that when they needed the cake as a plot point, they added it to the game!

    I gotta give you props for getting this cake right. My mom's parents are from Germany, and my Oma passed down the recipe to my mom and aunts. You made a Kirschtorte (as we call it) that we would all be proud of. If the Strudel didn't earn you the title, "Oma", this sure as shit did. Ausgezeichnet!

    I say this working as a pastry chef, but if you're doing a sponge base for a gateau like this or for anything else, actually folding through the dry ingredients with you bare (but scrubbed clean obvs.) hand is far more effective in carefully folding your dry ingredients through - it's more intuitive to how far you've mixed it and because it's a larger surface area, it saves time too. Guys with hairy arms be warned though, most of the batter will want to come with you, lol.
