    ½ cup (110 g) butter, softened

  • 1+¼ cup (275 g) sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1+¼ cup (140 g) all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup (50 g) unsweetened cocoa powder, natural
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup (1.8 dl) buttermilk

Ingredients For filling:

  • ¼ cup Kirschwasser (Kirsch/cherry brandy), optional
  • 2 cans (14 oz or 400 g) cherry pie filling or pitted cherries
  • 3 cups (7.2 dl) heavy whipping cream, chilled
  • ¼ cup confectioners’ sugar
  • Milk chocolate curls or shavings, for garnish
  • Maraschino cherries or sweet cherries, for garnish, optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 deg F (Gas mark 4 or 180 deg C).

  • Add sifted flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and buttermilk, and mix until the batter is smooth.
  • Transfer to a cake pan and bake at 350 degrees just until set in the middle, approximately 45-60 minutes. A wooden pick inserted in center should come out with just a few moist crumbs on it. Do not over-bake!
  • When cake is cool, use a long serrated knife to cut the cake horizontally into 3 equal layers. It is easier to cut if kept in a refrigerator for a few hours before cutting.


  • Drain cherry pie filling in a colander to remove most of the thickened juices.
  • Beat the whipping cream with confectioners’ sugar until it thickens.
  • Using a vegetable peeler, shave chocolate; refrigerate until the cake is assembled.


  • Sprinkle each layer of the cake with Kirschwasser.
  • Place one cake layer on a serving plate.
  • Spread about one fifth of the whipped cream on the layer, and strew half of the cherries on top of the whipped cream.
  • Add the second cake layer.
  • Spread one fifth of the whipped cream on the second layer and the remaining cherries on top.
  • Add the third cake layer.
  • Spread one fifth of the whipped cream on top and one fifth on the sides. Gently press chocolate curls on the sides and/or on top of the cake.


  • You may substitute the cherry pie filling with cherry jam. In that case spread first the jam on the cake layers, then whipped cream on top.
  • You may use three cake tins intead of one. In that case the baking time must be shortened.
  • If cake flour is used, the cake comes out much fluffier
