Chocolate Cherry Rye Cake With Cherry Chip Mocha Glaze

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by PaulaG

This is a sinfully, rich cake. It can be made in less than an hour and served a short time later. I used frozen sour cherries, thawed and dried them lightly. The cooking time incldues the baking and cooling of cake before glazing. Hope you enjoy.

This was great! I think next time I'll go a little lighter with the cloves. My whole family enjoyed this delightfully rich cake.
