i make this but use a boxed cake mix and a home chocolate icing to die for
I have yet to make this with the cherries! None of us are vegan, but i love saving money on eggs and dairy products! Don't try in a pan taller than 2" or the middle doesn't cook. Without cocoa, this makes a great banana cake (mashed banana to replace some of the oil) or spice cake (just, er, add cake spices) and I often use orange juice instead of water.
This cake was just OK. We ate it, but decided it just wasn't good enough to be a keeper. It didn't have that gooey-rich taste that I love in chocolate cake.
