This is a recipe handed down to me by my mother, many years ago.

I always keep a jar of cherries in the pantry as it is a wonderful stand-by if you suddenly need a cake, and it can be served without anything or with cream.

It is also very easy to make, always turns out, and always receives positive comments.

I am not sure if Mum originally used milk chocolate however I always use Lindt 70% dark chocolate for cooking.

I have served it here with the leftover sauce from this cake.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 40 minutes
Makes: 10- 12 servings

1 jar cherries -can be a smaller tin.
115 g butter
115 g chocolate
140 g sugar
120 g self raising flour
3 eggs

Turn oven on to about 170° or slightly higher if not fan forced.

Drain the liquid from the cherries.


Using an electric beater, cream the butter, sugar, eggs and add the flour slowly.

When this is almost done, melt the chocolate with a bit of water -I always do this in the microwave. Be careful you only do quite short bursts so you do not burn it.


Add this chocolate to the mixture.


Stir it in or alternatively continue mixing on low with the electric beaters.

Line a 20 - 23 cm springform with baking paper and place this mixture on to it.


Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, take out and put the drained cherries on top.


Bake a further 25 - 35 minutes or until the cake is done, but do not overcook as it is far nicer and moister if slightly underdone.
