The Basler Kirschenbrottorte, is just what the German describes—cherry bread cake from Basel. It's basically a big bread pudding, chock full of cherries.
Of course the best kirsch should be drunk alone, however there are a wealth of drinks, like this Kirsch Sour, that could be made with less exclusive varieties (I know everyone who has ever made cheese fondue has a bottle in their liquor cabinet).
This cherry dish, similar to the French clafoutis, is the oldest surviving cherry recipe from the canton of Zug, and was first published in the late 18th century.
The Black Forest Cake probably isn't actually named for the actual Black Forest, but for the spirit that was used to make the cake, Schwarzwälder Kirschwasser, a kind of cherry brandy that was distilled from Black Forest cherries. Or it might be named after the traditional costumes of the Black Forest.
