Two layers of chocolate cake, flavoured with rum and coffee, with mocha rum icing in the middle.
I made this today and it received thumbs up. It's delicious but very rich, so I skipped the whipped cream and cherries. - 21 Oct 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a good recipe, and pretty easy to make. I did add a teaspoon of vinegar to the batter and I think that helped to make it a little more moist. - 21 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I found this cake a little on the dry side, which was disappointing after all the work it took to make it. I did use fresh brewed coffee instead of instant, since I had a pot going...it saved some hassle. I added a little rum to the cherries for the topping, which jazzed them up and emphasized the rum flavor in the cake. - 31 Mar 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
