Chocolate Cherry Cake

Super-easy cake. I’m sure once I start pastry school this fall I won’t be using box mixes anymore… sigh. They really are so easy. This has a spongy texture, but super-moist.

1 box chocolate cake mix

1 can cherry pie filling

2 eggs

1 tsp extract. I used 1/2 tsp. vanilla and 1/2 tsp. raspberry. Hey I didn’t have strawberry, close enough. I also use it with the vanilla because I think the vanilla helps round out the flavor and it isn’t too berry-ish. Is that a word? LOL  🙂

Beat eggs with fork and then mix in the other ingredients. Don’t over-stir, just until mixed. Pour into a greased bundt pan and bake @350 for 35 minutes or until done. I topped with a chocolate glaze, but you can use frosting if desired. Glazes are easy and can be made with chocolate chips and heavy cream or butter, and about 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract. Make sure if you use a glaze to pour it on while cake is still warm.
