This is a beautiful cake with a subtle cherry and almond flavor. It is incredibly moist and quick. An impressive cake to serve for guests. I love that this cake is not too sweet, but with a nice chocolate cherry flavor. My best friend, Tina share this recipe with me. My family has been requesting ever since.
