I am making this recipe for our holiday party. Need to serve about 100 so decided to do a cupcake version. Tried the bundt version first and loved the rich taste and chunks of dark chocolate. Didn't want to mess with all the cake cutting the night of the party so did a trial with making it into cupcakes. Yes indeed. This will be the dessert and I'm sure I'll get rave reviews. I did substitute Devil's Food cake instead of yellow cake, otherwise, everything was the same. Cooked the cupcakes 23 minutes to perfect doneness. Will top with whipped cream and a few chocolate chunks.
Rich and full of flavor. The dark chocolate and cherry combination is wonderful. Best when made a day ahead so flavors can mingle. Moist and delicious!! Just add real whipped cream on the side to put this over the top!!! Will definitely make again!
This was a very good, moist cake, quite dense. When I make it again, I will try a devil's food mix or other chocolate instead of the butter recipe yellow; I prefer a more chocolate-y cake, but otherwise it was very good. The glaze was delicious.
