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? 😉

  1. Shinee,
    I’ve been making this for years, add a teaspoon of almond extract to the mix and top with a chocolate ganache. Mom’s Chocolate Covered Cherry Cake. My husband’s all time favorite. Comes out so moist and delicious.

    • Hi, Kelley! Almond extract sounds like a fabulous addition, so is the chocolate ganache. Thanks, and I’ll definitely try that next time. And yes, it’s so moist and delicious! It’s my latest favorite!

  2. I have made this cake many times. However, I have ‘baked’ in the microwave.
    I put the batter in a microwave safe bundt pan. Top pedi it with cool whip or whipped cream. Delish.com.

  3. I almost can’t believe this much deliciousness can be this easy. Definitely going to be a new go-to when I’m crunched for time and need a surefire winner.
