Chocolate Cherry Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

Chocolate Cherry Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting created by Amber C.

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

    I made this for my DH when he was away for business so when he came home to a cherry chocolate cake he was ecstatic to say the least! He loves cherries and so do I, we both really enjoyed this. I only mixed 4-6 oz of the cream cheese to the frosting and mixed the rest with powdered sugar to decorate the cake.

    As somebody who normally makes everything from scratch, especially anthing with chocolate, I found this recipe incredibly easy and remarkably delicious. I used coffee instead of the water and added two teaspoons of Almond Extract. It was wonderful.
