My brother's birthday was today. I figured I'd put a spin on his favorite treat, chocolate covered cherries, so I baked this Cherry Chocolate Cake from Taste of Home. Best part is, using a cake mix, I was able to prepare this quickly and easily and it was oh soo yummy!
1 package (18-1/4 ounces) chocolate cake mix
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 cans (20 ounces each) reduced-sugar cherry pie filling, divided
3/4 teaspoon confectioners' sugar
1. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs and almond extract until well blended. Stir in one can of pie filling until blended. Transfer to a 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray.
2. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire rack. Dust with confectioners' sugar. Top individual servings with remaining pie filling.
