Norma's notes for this recipe:
My neighbor brought this cake over last night for our dinner dessert and told me that it has only 250 calories and only 5 grams of fat. She knows I'm watching what I eat these days and has given me some great recipes. For a desset this one is the best I've ever had. It is so good; it was hard for Woody and I not to eat the whole thing. As the cake bakes into two layers, a tender chocolate spongelike cake and a rich chocolate cherry sauce. Oh, how I'm loving trying to loose some pounds. This is a keeper at our house for sure. Diet or not!!!!
