  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter cut into thin, small pats
  • 2 21 oz cans cherry pie filling make sure to give a quick check for pits


  • Preheat oven to 350 F and lightly grease a 9 x 13 inch baking pan.
  • Dump both cans of pie filling into the pan and spread it evenly so that no part of the bottom of the pan is visible. Sprinkle the dry chocolate cake mix over the cherries, covering them evenly.
  • Add the butter in pats to cover the cake mix.
  • Bake for 45 minutes, or until the cherry filling is bubbling around the edges. Serve warm on its own or with a scoop of ice cream and hot fudge sauce. Enjoy!


If you can't find 21 oz cans of cherry pie filling, feel free to use ones that contain slightly more or less. You could also use a different flavor cake mix. This recipe is flexible!
