1 (18.25 ounce) package
chocolate cake mix
1 (21 ounce) can
cherry pie filling
1 (10.5 ounce) package
Cake is very good but it took about an hour to bake, not 30 mins. as recipe says.
I'm not sure what happened with my cake, but it was a complete disaster!!! I cooked it for around an hour, according to the other reviews, but it sure didn't work! ALl the cherries stuck to the bottom of the pan and it wasn't cooked enough on the inside but burned on the outside! To top it off, the ruins didn't even taste okay! I had to make an emergency run to the store to buy a birthday pre-made cheesecake!
I tried this recipe with a yellow cake mix and it was incredible! The marshmallows had a beautiful look after they rose and started to brown and turn just a bit hard. I would fully recommend trying this style of recipe with a yellow cake mix.. chocolate just seems a bit much.
This cake is quite good served with whipped topping on top. Couldn't eat it plain though, it just needed something more. Without the whipped topping it would be a three star recipe. Something interesting that happens is the marshmallow end up on top, and the cherries end up on the bottom! It makes for a really ugly cake, but tastes good. I could possibly make this again.
very easy.... rave reviews from the people at work! They loved it. slices nice. Next time will add a cup of chocolate chips and pecans on top toward the end of baking as I would want them to stay on top and not sink in. Will make again as it is very inexpensive to make too.
I love this my grandmother makes this alot and now that I am so far from home I make it myself. It's so easy! But I agree with everyone else up the bake time to 60 min.
I have made this recipe many times when in a bind for a quick dessert. So easy to make and the cherry pie filling makes the cake super moist. Great with ice cream or Cool Whip. I've also experimented with using German Chocolate and Dark Chocolate cake mixes. All great! This is definitely one of my favorite recipes and wonderful for kids or the beginner cook!
Super easy to make. I topped my cake with chocolate chips as soon as it came out of the oven and let them melt for a few minutes and then spread them over the cake. I topped with chopped nuts, too. Then when serving I topped it with whipped cream.
