Tonight was Creative Sisterhood and it was a very nice evening.
I had the day off today so I had time to putter around the house a bit, which was great. I had lunch with Trish, but other than that I was pretty much home tidying up a little and working on some projects.
Last night I baked a new cake to share with Creative Sisterhood. I'm not generally a big fan of cherries, but I love this cake. It's wonderful.
Cherry Chocolate Cake
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 3/4 cups cake flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling
Cream butter and sugar, then mix in eggs and extract. Add remaining ingredients and mix. Pour into 9 by 13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.
1 c. sugar
1/3 c. milk
5 tbsp. butter
1 c. chocolate chips
Mix sugar, milk and butter in saucepan and boil for one minute, stirring continuously. Add chocolate chips and stir until melted. Pour over warm cake.
