Line the base of two ungreased deep round sandwich cake tins with discs of nonstick paper.
Put the milk in a saucepan with the flour and whisk well while bringing to the boil. Add the chocolate, broken into pieces, and the oil, then stir occasionally as the chocolate melts and the mixture takes on an oily, split appearance.
Spoon the mixture into a large mixing bowl, add sugar and vanilla then beat until smooth and glossy.
Beat in the eggs, two at a time, then add the flour and baking powder and stir well until smooth.
Divide the mixture between the tins and bake at 180C/160C fan/350F/gas mark 4 for about 40 minutes until a skewer poked in comes out clean. While the cakes are warm in the tin, wrap them well (I use clingfilm) then leave until cold.
Take the cakes out of tins. Spoon 2-3 tbsp of kirsch on top. Put cherry mix on top
To assemble, take the cakes out of the tins and spoon 2-3 tbsp of kirsch over the top of each if you like. Spread half the cherry mixture over each of the cakes, blob and swirl sweetened whipped cream over one, top with the other cake and spoon more cream over the top. Grate chocolate over to finish.
Cherry cake filling
Pit and halve the cherries then place in a saucepan with the lemon juice and water. Bring to the boil then simmer for about 10 minutes until the liquid has almost vanished and the cherries are tender.
Mix the jam with the cornflour, stir in with the cherries and bring to the boil again. Let the filling cool before using.
