Drunken Chocolate Cherry Cake is one of those delicious cakes that takes a little effort but once you taste it you will know it was worth every second in the kitchen. This recipe is simple and decadent!
Fill a mason jar with 3 cups of drained sour cherries. Add 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup rum and close the duo tightly. Shake vigorously until all the ingredients are well mixed. Let it sit in the fridge for 2-3 days making sure to shake the jar occasionally until the sugar dissolves.
In a large heatproof bowl, beat 10 eggs on high speed with a handheld mixer. Mix until the eggs become foamy, then add in 2 1/2 cups sugar. Keep mixing for another 5 minutes.
Using a serrated knife, slice off the top of the cake. Then run a knife along the edge of the cake leaving about 1/4 inch of the rim. You can leave less, that's even better, but there's always a risk of having it fall apart if it's too thin.
