Susan Duke's Chocolate Cherry Cake Recipe
My friend, Susan, brought us one of her favorite cakes, and it was delicious. She told me that the cake was very easy, and when she shared the recipe, I was very surprised to find that she was right. Susan Duke’s Chocolate Cherry Cake is quick to put together, and the final product is a light and flavorful cake that is suitable for serving for dessert on any occasion.

16 Servings

1 16.25 ounce chocolate fudge cake mix, (without pudding), or double or triple fudge, or Devil’s food
1 21 oz. can cherry pie filling
2 slightly beaten eggs
1 teaspoon almond extract

5 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup milk
1 cup sugar

1 cup milk chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 13" x 9" metal baking pan (glass doesn't work as well) with non-stick spray, line with parchment, and spray the parchment.
  2. Place the cake mix and cherry pie filling in a mixing bowl and mix by hand; stir in the beaten eggs and almond extract. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared baking pan.
  3. Bake 25-30 minutes or until the cake is set in the middle and begins to pull away from the sides. Let cool 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, make the frosting: melt the butter in a saucepan, add the milk and sugar. Bring to a boil and let boil one minute until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Pour over the warm cake and spread evenly. Let the cake cool before cutting into squares.
