Why ‘Drunken’ cake? Well, as Natasha explains : ‘the cherries are soaked in a golden rum and the layers are moist from cherry rum syrup.’ Doesn’t that sound delightful? And the flavour of cherry is often overlooked when one is contemplating the next cake to bake. Either way, this cake is moist and full of cherry-chocolaty goodness! And, doesn’t it look absolutely fabulous!
