Cherry Chocolate Cake with Coconut Cream

 

Cherry and Chocolate Cake-1

Happy Mother’s day ladies! We can’t do without cake and chocolates can we? Yes we can’t but this cherry and chocolate cake with a delicious coconut cream topping is a treat that won’t leave you covered with that old guilt blanket. This cake is thought through with wise ingredients to balance the sweetness and richness. I made it with spelt flour but I believevyou could try it with rye or buckwheat flour instead. Dark chocolate will give it that bitter and rich sticky taste that almost makes it taste like something utterly forbidden. I had bought some fresh cherries from our local Supervalue as they were on offer but you could try blueberries, dates or raisins instead, I know I’d like to try! I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. And I wish you a very happy, fun and restful Mother’s day. If you are a mother you deserve it. Shouldn’t there be a Mother’s day once a month instead of once a year? I think so…
