Chocolate cake and cherry pie filling blend together to make the most scrumptious bundt cake. You can't get much easier than this cake. 

Cherry Chocolate Cake recipe from Served Up With Love

It all starts with a cake mix. Yes, I said cake mix. Seriously though, you would never even know this is a cake mix. 

Rich, moist chocolate cake recipe filled with chunks of cherries. Perfect for potluck, picnics, and parties.

You make the cake by combining a box of fudge cake mix with eggs and cherry pie filling. No need to add the water or oil that the mix calls for, just the eggs, pie filling, and almond extract.

You can certainly make this in a 9 x 13 pan or make into a layered cake but I just prefer a bundt cake. It is just something about a bundt cake. It just elevates a plain ol' cake into something spectacular.

While going through my mom's stuff, I came across my grandma's cake stand. I have a slight obsession with cake stands and just had to have it.  Now when I use it I think of my grandma and my mom and feel like I have a little piece of them with me.

  5. My sister bakes chocolate cake for our mom during Valentine’s day! She makes the frosting extra special to convey her love for our mother. I’ll suggest she make cherry chocolate cake next time.

  6. This sounds so yummy and I have all the ingredients on hand to make this for Valentine's day. Question, could you make this using a different flavor of cake mix and pie filling?

  7. I am assuming that "1/2 chocolate chips" means 1/2 cup ??? This recipe sounds great--thanks !

  8. I just found this recipe and would love to make it this weekend. In looking at the glaze ingredients, it says "1/2 semi-sweet chocolate chips". Is that 1/2 a cup or 1/2 a bag?


I love hearing from you. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment!
