"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Directions:
Cream sugar and butter. Add egg. Mix dry ingredients and add alternately with sour milk. Add melted chocolate, nuts and chopped cherries and juice. I think there should be about 1/2 cups of maraschino cherries and 2 Tbs. juice.

Grease pans. Preheat oven to 350degrees. Pour into two 8 inch round cake pans or one 9" by 12" pan. Bake about 45-50 minutes. Cool in pans for 5 minutes. Shake ones and remove cake to complete cooling before frosting.

I have no idea how big a 10 cent jar of cherries is but trial and error indicates that it is the small jar of maraschino cherries.
