Are you looking for an delicious and impressive dessert to share with loved ones today? Or Maybe you are just planning on a nice quiet evening to yourself. Either way, this Cherry Pie Stuff Chocolate Cake should be on your menu. This fall we tackled the task of an apple pie inside of a spice cake and it was amazing, but the boys decided this time we should try this version as a twist on the very popular chocolate covered cherries. To make this cake, I started with a pre-baked cherry pie and store bought cake mix. You can also you the premade/bake yourself kind that is in the freezer section. The cake pan I used was a 10 inch round by 3 inch deep pan that I purchased in the cake decorating aisle at a craft store. You can use a smaller cake pan, if you wish, by just using 1 box of cake mix instead of 1.5. Once the cake batter is prepared according to the directions on the box, pour half of it into the bottom of your prepared cake pan, place the prebaked pie inside of the cake pan upside down on the batter, then pour the remaining batter over the top. 50 minutes later, viola! A pie/cake that is sure to be the talk of your kitchen table! Get our your favorite glass of wine or milk and enoy!
Cherry Pie Stuffed Chocolate Cake
- 2 – 15 ounce box chocolate cake mix prepared according to directions up to the baking portion
- 1 prebaked cherry pie
- Whipped Cream for Garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare the cake batters large in a mixing bowl and whisk until all ingredients are evenly combined. Pour ½ of the batter amount into a prepared 10 round cake pan. (I use a 3 inch depth pan) Invert the cherry pie onto the cake batter, remove the foil. Top with remaining cake batter and bake in the oven for 50-55 minutes or until cake has risen, top is solid and cake tester comes out clean and free of cake batter. (will have pie on it)
Remove from the oven and let cool for 2 hours. (You can cheat and set it outside for 30 minutes in our subzero temps) Invert cake onto a pie plate, slice and top with whipped cream for serving.
