Chocolate Cherry Brownie Cake
Pam well remembers this recipe. There was going to be a bake sale — something about the youth group Pam was in, and Mom helped her bake this two layer cake. Well, Pam was running late and didn’t have time for the cake to cool as long as it should have, so chocolate chips were still soft when she frosted it. Later that week, the person who purchased the cake at the sale came up to Mom to say how clever Pam had been to put a layer of chocolate in the middle of the cake; Mom just let the compliment ride.
