    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Filling

    • 1 cup powdered sugar
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 1 (1/2 liter) can pitted cherries, drained (I had to use cherry pie filling but that worked too)

    • 1 tablespoon cherry flavored liqueur

    Topping

    • 1 semi-sweet chocolate baking square

    Directions:

    1. 1

      Sift or mix together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and 1 teaspoon salt; set aside.
    4. 4
      Cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy.
    5. 5
      Add eggs and beat well, add vanilla.
    6. 6
      Add flour mixture, alternating with milk, beat until combined.
    7. 7
      Pour into 2 cake pans.
    8. 8
      Bake for 35-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
    9. 9
      Cut each layer in half, horizontally making four layers total.
    10. 10
      Sprinkle layers with 1/2 cup Kirschwasser.
    11. 11
      In a separate bowl whip the cream to stiff peaks, then beat in 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and 1 tablespoon Kirschwasser.
    12. 12
      Add sugar powder and pinch of salt beat again.

      Spread first layer of cake with 1/3 of the filling top with 1/3 of the cherries repeat with remaining layers.
    14. 14
      Frost top and sides of cake.
    15. 15
      Sprinkle with chocolate curls made by using a potato peeler on semisweet baking chocolate (I find that it's easier when the chocolate is room temperature).
    16. 16
      Enjoy the cake!

      DessertQueen, I made this recipe for my Mom and my Fiance' for Valentines Day, I added the drained Cherries to the batter and made it in a Bundt Pan. I drizzled Cream cheese icing on it & topped it with Chocolate Chips and Marischino Cherries and It was delicious! Definetly a Keeper! Thanks!

      Was looking for a new version of my husband's favorite. The cake had an overwhelming taste of alcohol, probably 1/2 C is too much Kirschwasser. The frosting was very good however, we had to throw the whole thing out.
