Tasty Tuesday Chocolate Cherry Cake!

First of all...

Happy Birthday, Ana! 

Sorry there aren't any balloons or buns, but I do have a good birthday recipe to share. I tried it out after having a piece of this cake at a restaurant, but I've only made it once and didn't take a picture. Basically, you substitute the water and oil the cake mix calls for with a can of cherry pie filling. It's incredibly good and moist!

Chocolate Cherry Cake

1 box chocolate cake mix
1 can cherry pie filling
2 eggs
I noticed some other versions calling for a tsp of either vanilla extract or almond extract. You can add it if you like, but I'm not sure it needs it.

Mix by hand and pour into a greased and floured 9 X 13 pan. Bake at 350 for 30-35 min or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Frost when cooled. I used chocolate icing, but I'm thinking cream cheese would be incredibly good on this.



  1. That cake recipe looks amazing, thank you!

  2. You're welcome, Ana! Me and my buddies had lunch at a restaurant in E-town on the way home from the lake last summer. I had that cake, and they both had cobbler. They kept going on about how the cobbler wasn't all that good. I told them repeatedly that the cake was awesome. They never tried a single bite of it. Their loss. ;)

  3. Happy Birthday ANA! What we couldn't even have birthday buns today!! I made that cake. YUMMY!!

  4. I promise to look into the picture issue soon, Donna. Just haven't had the time. :(
