  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil

Icing

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F.

  7. Spread the cake with a spatula in a hinged 12″ mold with parchment paper at the bottom.
  8. Bake for 45 minutes.

  10. Heat the water for the syrup and add the cherries and vodka. Simmer for 10 minutes until cherries are soft. Let it cool.
  11. To assemble the cake, the cake must be cold to handle. Cut it into small cubes.
  12. Place cake cubes at the bottom of the glass.
  13. Put about 1/4 cup of whipped cream on the cake.
  14. Pour syrup on top of the whipped cream.
