Today is my son's birthday and this is the third year he has requested this cake. I mix the cake according to the directions and it comes out moist and fudgy. The almond extract really compliments the cherry filling. I make this in two 9 inch round cake pans and bake them for 35 minutes.Instead of the glaze I frosted it with chocolate icing. I topped the cake with about 1 cup of additional cherry pie filling and used white icing piped around the edge to keep it from running over the sides. It looks gorgeous when finished. Everyone thinks it's from a bakery. Thanks for such a great recipe!



I made this cake in a bundt pan and drizzled cherry pie filling on top of the chocolate glaze. It was wonderful!



Divine and easy. Hubby gave 5 stars and he is hard to please. I used Pillsbury moist supreme devil. I added 1/2 c oil & 1/2 c water. I also placed batter in 2 greased 9 inch cake pans baked 30-35 minutes. I cooled the cakes and in between the layers I put chocolate icing then covered the entire cake with it. So good!! Icing simple: 4 & 1/2 c confec. sugar, 1/2 cup milk, 1 c soft butter, 1 & 1/4 c cocoa, 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp almond extract. Beat butter, then add rest and beat....so good and like I said easy
