This cake is simple enough for everyday enjoyment and decadent enough for special occasions. Two layers of chocolate sponge are sandwiched together with a cherry filling. Decorate with whipped cream and grated chocolate, if desired.
I can't say enough about this cake, it was excellent! I didn't add the liquor, as I didn't have any on hand and I added whip cream into the layer and iced it with whip cream. It was so moist, everybody had seconds. I found my husband the next day with a fork and the leftovers. - 20 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Omagosh this is goooood!!! I made it once as the recipe stated with cherry pie filling & cool whip topping, and again with raspberry pie filling, topped with a chocolate glaze and mounds of fresh raspberries. MMMMmMmmm...it was so good. The cake itself is so moist and delicous, you must try this recipe. - 27 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made this as a birthday cake and it turned out wonderful. Just rich enough without being too rich, very moist without falling apart. Used cool whip as a topping, as the cake is fabulous enough without a frosting. Only changes I made was adding a little cardamom to the batter and I omitted the liqueur this time (but will definitely try it next time.) Will definitely make this cake again. - 25 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
