Yield Makes 12 to 15 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 (18.25-oz.) package devil's food cake mix
  • 1 (21-oz.) can cherry pie filling
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Beat first 4 ingredients at low speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer 20 seconds; increase speed to medium, and beat 1 minute. Pour batter into a greased and floured 13- x 9-inch pan.

  2. Bake at 350° for 27 to 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool cake in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes.

  3. Bring sugar, milk, and butter to a boil in a heavy 2-qt. saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally; boil 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in chocolate morsels until melted and smooth. Quickly spread frosting over warm cake. Cool completely (about 1 hour).
