  • Place cherry pie filling, cake mix, eggs, and almond extract in a large bowl and mix by hand. Pour into a greased and floured 9-inch square pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes.

  • Cool cake on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Run a table knife around the edges to loosen. Invert carefully onto a serving plate or cooling rack. Let cool completely, at least 30 minutes. Frost with chocolate frosting.

I made the Chocolate-Cherry dump cake using chocolate fudge cake mix and a container of chocolate fudge frosting. I didn't have almond extract so used no extract. This cake was so moist and delicious especially for this chocolate lover! Read More

My oh my. landladyv, you have made some picky dessert eaters quite happy. We made it just as instructed. Yes, it took an extra 10 minutes to get the wooden skewer to come clean from the center,but other than that, no problems. Used parchment paper for easier removal from the pan. Definitely going into the dessert rotation. Next time might sprinkle some almond shavings and toast them on top. Read More
