A friend and I made this rich chocolate cake layered with cherries soaked on cognac.The recipe comes from Rose’s Heavenly Cakes by Rose Levy Beranbaum, which contains some excellent cake recipes.
This particular cake was so incredibly rich I could barely eat a small piece. I thought it was a bit too complicated for what is essentially a very intense chocolate cake. My friend, however, thought it was quite good so take my rating with a grain of salt.
Rating: So-so – I’m unlikely to make this again
