I was very excited that Amy of Amy Ruth Bakes chose this recipe. This was the recipe I almost chose when it was my turn to pick the selection. I really love the combination of cherry + chocolate, which is why it appealed to me so much and I was not disappointed. The cake was rich and super chocolate-y but the jam helped cut down on being overwhelmed by the intensity of the chocolate. The frosting might have been my favorite part, it was so good. My only change was that I used a springform pan instead of loaf pan so I only had one layer of jam. A delicious cake that almost had to be served with a cold glass of milk!
