It’s the best thing this world has ever created and you’ll never convince me otherwise. If you think I’m being dramatic, I am, but chocolate cake is worth it.


Prep - Preheat your oven. Mix the dry baking ingredients, except the sugar in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine half the vanilla and milk and mix. Set both aside.


Beat - Cream the butter and sugar together. Add eggs one at a time until combined. Alternate the flour and milk mixture, beating in between.


Bake - Grease your pans and divide batter evenly. Bake for 25 minutes. Allow to cool completely.


Make the filling - Beat the cream, some cherry syrup, and the rest of the vanilla until stiff peaks form.


Assemble - Lay out the first layer of cake and brush with cherry syrup. Place a layer of the filling on top along with half of the canned cherries. Repeat with the second and third layer.
