Chocolate Maraschino Cherry Cake

Chocolate Maraschino Cherry Cake created by DebS 2

The traditional birthday cake in our family. The cherries are a nice surprise when you take a bite of this chocolate cake. I add any nuts I have on hand but almonds are my personal favorite! When making a layer cake be sure to use parchment paper or the layers will break when you try to flip them out.

    Deb, I LOVE this cake. Just made it today and tried a few hours ago. It's soft as a feather! I used cake flour; don't know if it makes a difference. This is going to be my birthday cake next year! Thanks for sharing!
