Smooth chocolate cake with cherries and puffed quinoa

Like creamy, dark truffles. But as a smooth chocolate cake. That you can store in the freezer so that you don’t have to eat everything at once. Or, always be prepared when that I-must-have-something-anything-will-do! feeling (sorry, guests I mean of course) arrive … A smooth chocolate cake made with the finest cherries from a garden close to you. And puffed quinoa from maybe a bit further away.
