Chocolate Cherry Cake

What a busy week this has been so far! I feel like I’ve spent the majority of the week running around like a chicken with its head cut off. I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s the approaching full moon…

However, even though it has been an extremely busy week, I did manage to get a little baking done. 🙂

I just love this Chocolate Cherry Cake!! It’s so easy to make and has only six ingredients – yet it tastes so delectable, everyone will think you spent hours slaving away in the kitchen making it. 😉


Chocolate Cherry Cake

1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling
1 (18.25 ounce) box German Chocolate cake mix
2 eggs
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 (12 ounce) package semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup walnut pieces (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 13x9x2-inch pan.

In a medium bowl, mix cherry pie filling, cake mix, eggs, and almond extract by hand. Pour batter into prepared pan.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle chocolate chips on top. When chips begin to melt, spread to cover cake. Sprinkle with walnut pieces; if desired.
