Directions

  1. In a large bowl, beat eggs and vanilla on high speed until foamy. Add sugar; beat until thick and lemon-colored. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; fold into egg mixture, a third at a time.
  2. Pour into two greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool for 5 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  3. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, 2/3 cup sugar, vanilla and cinnamon until smooth. Stir in sour cream, walnuts, coconut if desired and cherries. Fold in chocolate. In a chilled large bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add remaining sugar; beat until soft peaks form. Fold half of the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture. Set remaining whipped cream aside.
  4. Split each cake into two horizontal layers; spread a fourth of the cream cheese mixture on one layer. Repeat. Frost sides with reserved whipped cream. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 10-12 servings.
