This is a hack! I can’t call it a recipe, but this worked and it was delicious! I was in such a hurry I used a boxed cake mix, followed the directions and added a Tablespoon of cocoa powder and half a teaspoon of vanilla to enhance the flavors. I divided the battery into two 6 inch pans I had buttered and floured. I baked them at 350°F just until a toothpick came out clean, about 25 minutes.
I didn’t take too many shortcuts. I made the Sweet Dark Cherry Sauce, whipped cream and shaved chocolate pieces.
Once the cake has cooled, place it on your serving tray. Make a whipped cream ring around it and fill it with Sweet Cherry Sauce. Place the second layer of the cake, top with whipped cream, chocolate shavings and a few cherries. Serve with extra Sweet Cherry Sauce on the side.
