Easy and Delicious Chocolate Cherry Cake Recipe

A little while ago a friend and I traded some babysitting and while I was at her house she offered me a piece of cake. Of course I said yes and what followed was a super delicious chocolately treat! She told me that it is the cake her husband requests every year for his birthday, and after tasting it, it wasn’t hard to see why. I immediately asked if I could have the recipe, because I wanted it for myself, and then I also knew I had to share it here on the blog! I was surprised at how easy it was, which makes it even better! It is more of a semi-homemade cake which is my favorite kind of recipe. They’re quick, hard to mess up, and are made with easy ingredients. The perfect combination: Chocolate Cherry Cake!

The detailed recipe is below, but here are the basic steps! This cake starts with a boxed mix (devil’s food cake), a can of cherry pie filling, eggs, water, and almond extract.

Once all the ingredients are mixed together pour into a greased 9×13 pan and bake for 40 minutes.

Then comes the really good part! Using butter, chocolate chips, milk, and sugar make a fudge frosting. In all honesty I could just eat this frosting all by itself. It is so good and the best part of this cake in my opinion.

The frosting goes on while the cake is still slightly warm and the end result is a gooey, yummy, chocolately cherry piece of deliciousness.

Another great thing about this recipe is that it makes several servings! Baked in a large pan this cake will go a long way when feeding a crowd. The detailed recipe as well as the printable PDF are below. When you make this yummy treat be sure to come back and let me know how it turns out!
