Chocolate cake with cherries.

Chocolate cake with cherries.

Made today for my two friends and me. Both live opposite me and we usually enjoy coffee mornings and sunny afternoons in the garden sharing cakes and gossip..Haha.
Of course we haven't done it over the last couple of years, but we still share baking..:))

I wanted to put chopped nuts on the top instead of the cherries, but only found them too late!

Looks yummy,Janey,it's one of our favourites too. Our Grandchildren asked if I would make one for Christmas Day,as neither like traditional Christmas cake ..Only too happy to oblige :o) If your friends are anything like our Family,it won't last very long ! Amy and I share the same recipe :o) xx

Good idea,Janey,a girl should never be without a toffee ! I'm afraid I'm not as adventurous as you, I'm a plain Toffee person..We especially love the ones from a well known Supermarket , A..i...:o)) xx

And I know the toffees you mean! But my teeth are chattering...no, no no!!

Take no notice of your chattering teeth Janey. they will soon change to yes ,yes yes,when they taste one ! ,or one of the Chocolate Eclair ones ,then it will be 'Yippee ' !:o) xxx
