Chocolate Cherry Cake

Laura Daszynicz


I found this recipe in my "PUT THE UN IN COOKING FUN WITH 7UP, cookbook. This little booklet was made by the Seven-Up Company in 1969. I used a white cake mix for this cake and cherry juice in place of the vanilla, then I drizzled some juice down the cake and topped with cherries. I had a 10 ounce jar of cherries so I was able to do more with the juice.
