This cake looks so yummy Brenda-Lee! And easy! I love semi-homemade too! This is a save for me! Lol Toula! It's so funny what we crave when we are pregnant! When I was pregnant with my first I craved cherry limeades. My husband worked evenings a lot, so my brother-in-law would either come over to our house or pick me up to watch the little league games he coached. It was soooo hot that summer, and he would bring me a cherry limeade almost every time he came over...the doctor let me know right away that had to stop...but oh they have never tasted as good!

I will be making this today! sounds scrumptious & quick & easy. Will also post a recipe I have from a Pillsbury Bake-Off recipe book (the late 1970's) for Chocolate Cherry Bars..baked in a jelly roll/sheet pan & frosted while still warm with a decadent chocolate (cooked) frosting. This has been on mt favorites list for the past 30+ yrs.

k i made this and oh my! yumm..i added a few things ...i used 8oz sour cream,and added almost a 1/2 cup marichino cherry juice to the batter..
for the icing i used a can of milk chocolate icing. then i cut up 8 marichino cherries n put them in the canned frosting.then to that, i added aprox.14 cup marichino juice..stirred well..i iced the cooled (i used a bundt pan)and put into the freezer for aprox 10 mins.then served ..i had 2 grown men fighting over it lol
