Cherry Chocolate Cake

Here is another recipe that I've tried lately....It would be perfect for Valentine's Day!!! Super easy to make but a nice change from your normal chocolate cake. My hubby said it was even better the next day cold straight out of the refrigerator.

Cherry Chocolate Cake

1 box Chocolate Cake mix
1 (21 oz.) can Cherry Pie Filling
2 Eggs, well beaten
2 tsp. Almond Extract

Beat by hand until moistened. Pour into a greased 9 x 13" cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until toothpick is clean.

While cake is warm........
1/3 cup milk
1 cup sugar
5 T. margarine
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Bring milk, sugar and margarine to a boil over medium heat. Boil 1 minute stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add chocolate chips. Stir until smooth and spread over cake to edges. Let cool.
Optional: Add 1 cup chopped walnuts to the chocolate mixture.


  1. So you beat, with a mixer, the cherry pie filling with the cake mix, eggs, and extract?

    Do you have to refrigerate it?

    Thanks! Chantel

  2. Sorry Chantel...I've been away from the post for awhile and didn't realize you had left a comment. I just used a large wooden spoon to stir the cake mix, cherry pie filling, eggs & almond extract together..(actually Madelyn helped me stir) I kept my cake in the refrigerator and it was even better the next day!!!
