Delicious! I have made a simular cake before but without the cherry pie topping, that is very good. If I find the other recipe I will throw it out, only need one and this is it! I used the extract because I didn't have the brandy but I can't wait to try it that way too. Thanks Rach! Chip
I've been making a different version of this recipe for yonks now (Lennie's Fudge Pudding Cake). We have Sushiman's kids every other weekend and they always request this for Friday night dessert. Well, I was getting a bit tired of making it every other week, and was happy to see a chance to mix it up a bit. This version is a lot more chocolate-y, and I like the adult addition of kirsch, but it's the cherry pie filling that really does it right! I up the milk to a full cup (actually, I use soy cream) and served this with homemade vanilla ice cream. Thanks, I love this recipe!
