Beat butter until fluffy; gradually stir in sugar and eggs. Mix flour, baking powder and add to the mixture.
Grease a baking tray or one lined with baking parchment. Spread half of the mixture on the prepared baking tray.
Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
Mix the cocoa with the remaining mixture and spread over the light mixture. Use a fork to mix the light and dark mixtures together to create a marbled effect. Drain the sour cherries, spread them across the cake mixture and press down lightly.
Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes.
Mix the Angel Delight with the milk according to the instructions on the packaging and remove the cooled cake from the oven. Finally, coat with melted chocolate to taste.
