Chocolate Cherry Cake

This is another delicious recipe from my mom. I remember loving this cake when I was younger and haven't had it in years. When I came across the recipe I knew I had to make it. It was as good as I remembered! Surprisingly there isn't a cherry flavor in the cake, you don't even notice them until you have a bite with a cherry in it. The frosting is awesome too, it's the consistency of a soft fudge.-Sarah

1 boxed chocolate cake mix
3 eggs
1 can cherry pie filling
  • Stir eggs and pie filling into dry cake mix. Making sure to combine well without any dry lumps remaining.
  • Spread into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees about 30-35 minutes. Cool before frosting.
1 cup sugar (not powdered)
5 T. butter
1/3 cup milk
1 cup chocolate chips
  • Bring sugar, butter and milk to a boil in a small saucepan. Boil for 1 minute, remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips until smooth. Quickly pour over cake and smooth. (This will set pretty quickly once it touches the cake)
