I‘m thinking this picture needs a title. Should it be “Odd Man Out” or “Vive la difference”? Either way, I can relate to the bright red cherry. Which way depends on the day.
On to the cake–or is it a loaf? Another identity crisis. This intensely flavored chocolate cake is baked in a loaf pan and has a firm, dense texture like a pound cake (at least mine did). I used cherry jam between the layers for a “Black Forest” experience.
The frosting sounded weird to me. Melted semi-sweet chocolate and sour cream. Was something left out of the directions? Nope. Tasted wonderful as it turns out and couldn’t have been easier.
I liked this cake as is. But all the men at my Father’s Day celebration thought it was even better with a dollop of whipped cream. What isn’t?
Visit Amy Ruth Bakes to get the recipe. Even if you don’t need the recipe, you really should check out her post and be sure to watch her slideshow on Flickr. She has some amazing photography going on.
