Great cake! I do have one problem with it though.....my husband ate half of it a few hours after I made it. LOL I did change just one little thing about the recipe. I used a wooden spoon handle to make the holes instead of a fork. Thanks for sharing this recipe!


Play around with this recipe, its lots of fun. I made a chocolate cake mix (added a box of instant pudding and one egg) and baked in a 9x13. Then I poured raspberry gelatin over the top, chilled, cut in half and filled the middle layer with raspberry jelly, and frosted with dark chocolate frosting. Delicious!

I have made this cake for many years, but I changed things around and made it a delicious cake. I made a chocolate cake, with cherry jello, cherry pie filling and topped it with chocolate cool whip. But of course you have to like chocolate and cherry together, my family loves the two together. of course it is good also if you top it off with chopped pecans.
