Black Forest Dump Cake

I could not figure out what to make for dessert last night and because it ended up being a busy day I was not afforded a lot of time to come up with something.

I remembered I had a chocolate cake mix I bought when they were on sale for $0.99, and I knew I had a few cans on hand of cherry pie filling, so the idea was born lol.

Black Forest Dump Cake!


Fingers crossed, I am hoping to spend most of the day outside getting started on all the stuff I want to cut out of wood with my scroll saw so I can get back to painting for Christmas!  Wish me luck lol!


Here are the whole FOUR ingredients!


I put the two cans of cherry pie filling into my greased 9 x 9 pan. And maybe, just maybe, keep a spoonful or two just to eat!


I sprinkled the cake mix over top of the cherries.


And then pour the melted margarine all over the top of the cake mix.


Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and you have a hot, gooey, chocolatey cherry dessert.  You can top it with ice cream or whipped cream but we ate it as is.  You can see how anxious we were to get into it… I didn’t get a picture of it fresh from the oven, so missing a bit will have to suffice lol!
