Wednesday's Chow - Black Forest Cake

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, here's a quick and delicious recipe for a desert. This recipe calls for an oblong pan, so it won't look like the one in the picture (and even if the recipe asked for round pans, my cake wouldn't look like the one in the picture.....it would be a mess!)


1 18 oz box devil's food cake mix
1 20 oz can cherry pie filling
1 3.4 oz package vanilla instant pudding
1 cup milk
1 8 oz carton whipped topping
Chocolate shavings (if desired)

1. Prepare cake mix according to package directions and bake in sprayed, floured 9 x 13-in baking pan.

2. While cake is still warm, poke top with fork several times and spread cherry pie filling over cake.

3. While cake cools, prepare pudding with milk. Fold in whipped topping.

4. Spread pudding mixture over cake, and carefully cover cherry pie filling. Sprinkle shavings on sides. Refrigerate.

We made Black Forest Cake last week. The first was such a disaster, we had to throw it away after chiseling it out of the pan. Second turned out better (couldn't have been worse!), but didn't live up to my hopes. I'll copy this one and give it a try. I love that cake! Penny (pwestauthor@yahoo.com)
