  • Sift together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in eggs, vanilla and espresso.
  • Separately blend buttermilk and sour cream together until well combined.
  • Beat flour mixture, alternating with buttermilk and sour cream, into the creamed mixture until combined.
  • Bake 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
  • Cool completely.
  • Cut each layer in half, horizontally, making 4 layers total.
  • Brush layers with the ¼ cup kirsch.
  • In a medium bowl, cream the butter until light and fluffy.
  • Add sugar; beat until smooth.
  • If the consistency is too thick, add a couple teaspoons milk.
  • Spread first layer of cake with 1/3 of the filling, topping with 1/3 of the cherries. Repeat with the remaining layers.
  • In a separate bowl, whip the cream to stiff peaks. Beat in sugar, dry milk and kirsch.

    Sounds great. One question: can dried or canned cherries be used? I hate to even suggest such a thing, but we only have fresh cherries available once per year and for a very brief time.
