I warn you...it's addictive. Any time we had leftover coffee Buck always said, "There's enough for "the" cake." Glad you enjoyed it. It's definitely a keeper.

I've discovered over the years that this cake lends itself to all manner of toppings/frostings. Just go with it.

Originally, this cake was served with a thick fudge frosting. Really good, but it stands so well on its own, it really doesn't need it. The cherries are a wonderful accompaniment. Yep, just like Black Forest cake.

It's also good "chunked" in parfait glasses and drizzled with liqueurs. Raspberry for sure, then topped with some whipped cream.

Oh, crap! Now I want some of this cake.

If it's any consolation, I've also made it and divided it into 2 square (8- x 8-inch) pans, disposable ones, and stored the baked cakes in the freezer in the pans...for a "cake emergency."

I wonder how this cake would work in a bundt pan? It sounds scrumptious and would be great to take to a potluck that I am going to next month.
