- Note: This recipe may also be prepared in a 10-inch Bundt pan. Use only 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk. Increase baking time to 55 minutes plus 15 to 20 minutes covered loosely with foil, shiny side out. Cake may be dusted with powdered sugar prior to serving or frosted.
- In medium saucepan, combine remaining sweetened condensed milk with 2 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate. Cook and stir over low heat until chocolate melts and mixture thickens. Stir in 1/3 cup cherry juice and spoon over cake.
