Cherry Chocolate Cake

September 7, 2010 at 7:26 pm 2 comments


Yep, it’s as good as it sounds, and very easy. First time I made it, I added some milk chocolate chips, but in the future I think I’ll leave them out as they really didn’t add to the overall flavor.

Cherry Chocolate Cake:
1 box chocolate or Devil’s Food cake mix
(water, eggs, oil per instructions)
1 small or 1/2 large bottle maraschino cherries, quartered
2/3 cup (approximately) pecans, broken up

Prepare cake as per package directions. Stir in cherries and nuts, bake as directed on package. Cool, frost with your choice of frosting; I prefer cream cheese.

Cream Cheese Frosting:
1 brick cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons butter, softened
Dash salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Powdered sugar
 
Beat together the softened cream cheese, butter, salt, and vanilla extract. Add powdered sugar until you achieve desired consistency, probably four to five cups. Interesting note: When you first start adding a little powdered sugar, the mixture will actually get thinner until you add quite a bit more powdered sugar. Refrigerate to “set” the frosting.
