Cherry Chocolate Cake

Cherry Chocolate Cake
This gluten-free cherry chocolate cake is delicious and easy and my family loves it. I have several gluten-eating friends who love this cake and have made it for their gluten-free friends.
I have used Bette Hagman’s and Carol Fenster’s flour mixes in this, and they both turn out well.
