This great tasting chocolate fudge cherry cake is made with a cake mix and cherry pie filling. Rich and festive yet incredibly easy to prepare, this cake is great for birthdays or any time of year. Use store-bought frosting instead of making it at home for an even quicker cake.
For the Chocolate Cake
1 (15 1/4-ounce) box devil's food cake mix
1 (21-ounce) can cherry pie filling, or homemade version
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon almond extract, optional
For the Frosting
1 cup granulated sugar
5 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/3 cup milk
6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
Gather the ingredients.
Heat the oven to 350 F. Grease and flour a 9- x 13- x 2-inch baking pan.
In a mixing bowl, mix the cake mix, cherry pie filling, eggs, and flavoring by hand.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
For the frosting, place sugar, butter, and milk in a saucepan.
Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for one minute.
Remove from the heat and stir in chocolate chips until smooth.
Pour the frosting over the warm cake.
Let cool, then serve and enjoy!
