"I have made this cake at least a dozen times over the past 5 years. Absolutely delicious! I leave out the nuts. I have found that it is best to make the cake 1 or 2 days before you want to eat it."

"The chocolate overpowered the cherry flavor a little more than I would have liked, but overall a good cake!"
