Why I Love This Recipe

Cherries and chocolate are a combination that can't be beat. My family love this cake for Christmas.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup Butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup maraschino cherries, drained, quartered
3/4 cup hot water
1/2 cup chocolate syrup
1/4 cup maraschino cherry juice
Whole maraschino cherries, if desired


Heat oven to 350°F. Combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. Add milk, butter and vanilla; mix well. Stir in 1/2 cup cherries.

Spread batter into greased 8-inch square (2-quart) baking dish. Combine hot water, chocolate syrup and maraschino cherry juice in 2-cup glass measure. Pour evenly over batter.
