I’d like to think I’m a bit of a bad ass when it comes to cake. Yea, bad ass. I can mix batter, pour it into pans, and bake like it’s nobody’s beeswax.

Frosting and decorating? I could improve on that. In fact, I’m working on mastering the art of frosting. I’m almost there, boo.

But when it comes to manipulating gluten into a nice moist cake, I am Wonder Woman. The Amazon Wonder Woman with the thick thighs and the giant rack. Cake speaks to me. Call me the cake whisperer.

I know how this sounds. It does sound like I’m some egomaniac. And perhaps I am. I like to see it as super confident in my gluten manipulating abilities.

Now flow with me, let’s talk about this Cherry Molten Chocolate Cake.

First, allow me one more super narcissistic moment to state, I am a mad genius.

Genius.

Why?

Because I took my favorite chocolates – Chocolate covered cherries – And turned them into molten chocolate cake.

Yes!

As a young girl of 17 with a lightning fast metabolism, our grocery store used to sell Cello chocolate covered cherries in singles. I never missed a chance to buy at least half a dozen of these babies.

Since my little brother wasn’t into chocolate I was free to eat them at leisure. Chocolate covered cherries remain, to this day, one of my favorite chocolates.

Now that I’m almost 40, I cannot eat a dozen chocolates in one sitting.

What I can do, in moderation, is enjoy one single highly indulgent cake. So this Cherry Chocolate Molten Cake was born. It carries with it all the elements of chocolate covered cherries. Maraschino cherries encased in a moist chocolate outer shell made entirely of cake.

When you break into this cake, instead of maraschino cherry juice, you are greeted with molten chocolate cake whose ratio consists of more milk than bittersweet.

On purpose.

Four cherries in each cake guarantee a cherry in almost every bite.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what makes me such a bad ass.
