Surprisingly moist and soft, this 3-ingredient chocolate cherry cake is a crowd-pleaser. You’d be amazed how easy it is to make it too!
Holy smokes, you guys, this chocolate cherry cake is simply a magic!
Let me elaborate…
You’ll need 3 ingredients and about 5 minutes of your time to make this cake. And in return, you’ll get super moist and surprisingly tall and soft chocolate cake studded with cherries. If that’s not magic, I don’t know what is.
I’m so glad I tried this recipe when I saw it in local FB group I’m part of, and I urge you to give it a try too!
Now, I know we’re cheating here big time with canned pie filling and cake mix. But it’s SO worth it! I stocked my pantry with couple of cake mixes and canned cherry pies for “emergencies”. You know, when you have guests on short notice, or when you need a bite of chocolate cake like right now, or when you can’t decide between chocolate cake and cherry pie. Ok, don’t know about that last one, because this cake is nothing like a cherry pie. Aaanyway, moving on…
So this chocolate cherry cake is delicious either warm or cold.
You can enjoy it warm, topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate ganache. HEAVEN! Or you can smother it with chocolate fudge, whipped cream and maraschino cherry. My favorite! Or eat it plain dusted with powdered sugar, or not. Less calories, but we don’t really care about calories around here, right? 😉
Oh and since it’s a large cake, it’s perfect for potlucks, office treats, and church gatherings. And I’m telling ya, it’s quite a crowd-pleaser!
And here’s a quick video tutorial to show you just how easy it is to make this incredible chocolate cake.
