Chocolate Cherry Cake

I found this recipe in a cookbook given to me by my great-aunt Ann as a wedding gift. It is the cookbook put together by her church, and it has so many wonderful recipes!

I made this for a Christmas party this week, and it was amazing! I used a bundt pan instead of a 9x13 pan.

Don't forget to visit Carol for more Saturday Stirrings recipes.


Chocolate Cherry Cake

1 box chocolate cake mix
1 can cherry pie filling
3 eggs

1 c. sugar
5 T. margarine
1/3 c. milk
1 c. semisweet chocolate chips
1 t. vanilla

Mix cake mix, cherry pie filling, and eggs in a large bowl. Pour into a greased and floured 9x13 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

For Fudge Icing: combine sugar, margarine and milk in a saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a rolling boil. Boil and stir for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Add semisweet chocolate chips and vanilla. Mix well and pour over cake.
