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.

Double Chocolate Brownie Cake

Double Chocolate Brownie Cake

I made an incredibly yummy, and oh so super-moist, brownie cake in a bundt pan. Unfortunately, my iPhone camera left much to be desired and the colors just came out… wrong. So, I’m sharing the link with amazing pictures on it. I substituted Kahlua for the water and it came out great, still mildly flavored, but yummy nevertheless. You can sub any liquor or even milk for the water. Mix and match and have fun. This is an extremely moist and very gooey brownie cake. It is more dense than a typical cake. It’s, well, brownie-like just ramped up a bit  🙂
