Chocolate Cherry Dump Cake

Chocolate Cherry Dump Cake | The Happy Housewife

The following is a post from Lynn.

I love to cook and bake, but I am busy like most of you. I would love to spend hours in the kitchen cooking and making all kinds of desserts, but the reality is that most days I need quick and easy recipes.

I need meals and desserts that I can put together in just a few minutes. And I need them to contain everyday pantry ingredients.

This recipe for chocolate cherry dump cake is just that. It is a quick and easy dessert that contains basic ingredients.

Chocolate Cherry Dump Cake | The Happy Housewife

Dump cakes of one form or another have been around for years. Growing up, dump cakes were one of the desserts that my mom made often. They were one of  her go-to desserts. She made many different versions over the years, and we always loved them.

The version I am sharing with you today is a chocolate cherry dump cake, but this version is a little different than most dump cakes. It contains cola which gives it a unique, but very good flavor.

Chocolate Cherry Dump Cake
Recipe type: Dessert
 
Ingredients
  • 1- 21 ounce can cherry pie filling
  • 1 chocolate cake mix
  • 1 cup cola ( I prefer to use regular coca cola)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spread cherry pie filling into a 9×13 inch pan.
  3. In a bowl mix together dry cake mix and cola until combined and spread over cherries.
  4. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until done. You want the top to have a cake like texture.

    Harriet, the peach and 7 up sounds great!

  11. Oh Em Gee. I love dump cake at least what I call traditional dump cake where you put the pie filling of your choice in a pan (nuts if you want), sprinkle a dry cake mix over the top, cover with 2 sticks of butter and bake. I have never heard of or seen it done this way with chocolate and coca cola, I can’t wait to make this! Thanks for sharing.

  12. I’m going to try this, but with diet cola or diet Dr. Pepper instead. I love chocolate and cherry together.

  13. Donna says:

    Do you think it would come out OK with a brownie mix instead of a cake mix?

  14. Michelle says:

    I am using a cup of Dr. Pepper instead of Coke, because that is what I have on hand. My house smells sooo Good. I can hardly wait to sink my fork into it! & I will def try the peach with 7up next time!!!!
