What a nice tribute to your mother by posting her recipes. I too love the combination of chocolate & cherries. Such a wonderful tasting cake and so moist. So easy to make. I'll be making this over and over again. :-)

We have to give this cake 5 stars! It was not only the easiest cake to put together, but turned out to be one of the best cakes we have tried.Cooking time was close to an hour but it was worth the wait. Very moist and melts in your mouth. Thank you for sharing the recipe, it's one we will be making for years to come!
