Hello All She Cooks readers. It’s Aniko from Place of my Taste and I am back again to share a yummy recipe with you.
Are you ready to indulge yourself with some awesome chocolate cake?
I personally LOVE chocolate cake in any form. On a Sunday afternoon I did not know what I needed.. I knew I needed something sweet, but I wasn’t sure what I was craving for. That’s when I set down, search the net and found this fantastic chocolate cake recipe that I am sharing with you today.
…Chocolate and cherries…
The original recipe did not call for cherries, but I thought it could just be a great addition to this cake. Chocolate cake with cherries…yum! A few years ago I discovered the best morello cherries at Trader Joe’s. I have been using these cherries for baking ever since. If you are going to throw a valentine party this is a must have cake. If you don’t have party plans for Valentine’s day, bake this amazing cake for any other occasion.Print
