Cherry Chocolate Cake

Looking for an easy dessert?! Look no further my friends! This cherry chocolate cake is just a few ingredients turned into a moist and delicious cake dotted throughout with delicious cherries. When I went to college my mom put a handful of my favorite recipes into a small recipe book and this was one of those recipes. This recipe is perfect for a few reasons:
  1. It has very few ingredients
  2. It is moist and delicious
  3. It is cheap to make
Not everyone loves fruit and chocolate mixed together like this but if you do, this cake will NOT disappoint. I like to dust it with powdered sugar instead of spread a thick frosting on it. Sometimes I'll mix powdered sugar, milk, and a little vanilla extract and drizzle that frosting over the top. You see, for being a chocolate cake it is actually very light and moist and a heavy frosting might be too much. If you do try a heavier frosting (store bought, buttercream, cream cheese frosting, etc) let me know what you think because I don't know if I would ever change up such a perfect dessert!
