Chocolate Cherry Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by bayoucritter aka. a

The cake is delicious and very moist. I keep mine in the fridge and tastes great cold. Chocolate & cherries go great together, so why not in a cake! Adding soft cream cheese to canned frosting makes a great difference & makes it not so 'sugary'. ENJOY

OH so moist and ever so delicious! Made this for my Dh's birthday cake and everyone was asking for a second piece. It was so simple to make too, and very delicious! Thanks!!
