chocolate cake mix
1 (21 ounce) can
cherry pie filling
semisweet chocolate chips
This was the best chocolate cake I have ever made. I used a bundt pan, so you need to half the frosting. Today I made another one using white cake mix, apple pie filling and white chocolate chips for the frosting. Delicious.....
Made this as a bundt cake with a triple chocolate cake mix. I followed the other suggestions of baking 43 minutes and cutting back to 1/2 cup sugar in the frosting. Instead of chocolate chips, I used white chocolate chips. My boyfriend liked the cake but I found it very gritty/granular tasting. The granularity seemed to be the cake mix, rather than the sugar (which some reviewers had commented about). But definitely a moist cake! Initally, the batter seems to be very thick. Also, I think I would have added more cherry pie filling to make it a thinner batter - that might help with the grittiness.
This is one of my all time favorite chocolate cakes. I add one tsp of almond flavoring the cake mix and I think it is then perfect! You can also bake it in a jelly roll pan for bars. It is so fast and easy to make and a big hit at pot luck dinners.
I originally found this recipe in a cookbook from Western NC. It uses almond extract also. Gives it more of a chocolate covered cherry taste. Still a delicious cake tho.
This was easy and fast. It was very moist. I didn't change a thing, except I used the Satiny Chocolate Glaze from this site for the icing.
This is very yummy cake, and the icing was yummy. I made a 13 x9 cake, and added maraschino cherries for garnish for each piece. I will definately make this again. This is a keeper.
Good. Used at potluck. did not try frosting. Used small amt. can fudge frosting while cake was warm.
Very moist - excellent. I put the cherry pie filling in the mixer with the cake mix to crush the cherries as we don't care for them whole in cakes. We loved it!
