How to make it

  • For the cake:
  • Mix together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder in a large bowl.
  • In another bowl, whisk together the oil, buttermilk, eggs, syrup, vinegar and vanilla.
  • Combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients into a smooth batter.
  • Divide the batter evenly among 3 baking pans.
  • Place the pans in an oven that has been preheated to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Bake for 30 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.
  • Remove the cakes from the oven and cool them on a drying rack.
  • Mix together the cream cheese and butter together.
  • Add the chopper cherries and mix again.
  • Sift in the confectioners' sugar slowly to avoid powdering the kitchen.
  • Continue mixing until the frosting is smooth and creamy.
  • Refrigerate the frosting until the cakes are cooled.
  • Place a pat of frosting on the plate to hold the bottom cake still.
  • Frost to your desire.
  • It'd probably be best to let it sit for a while in the fridge (which we did not) to let the frosting set.
  • You also might want to trim the cakes, assuming you have the skill and tools for that (I don't)

    Where are the eggs in this recipe?. How many eggs are needed in the second bowl?. Also missing the amount of the buttermilk needed, or the amount of milk needed to make the buttermilk with the vinegar. Like the idea of using cherries and juice in place of food coloring.

    Hey Rrooster's recipe will be red if you use 2 oz. red food coloring (change to green for St. Patty's Day). At least this college student is eating well!
