My mother used to make Chocolate Cherry Cake when I was growing up. It was so good and I carried on the tradition with my own family. Over the years, I started adding a little fudge, topped it with my own fluffy frosting & maraschino cherries. We renamed it as it looks more like a sundae than a cake. Very decedant, and oh so good!
