This recipe had me at dump. Why? Because a dump cake means it involves no fancy instructions and no temperamental batter; just dump and bake. And, this chocolate cherry dump cake does not disappoint. It is perfect for this recipe challenged girl!
I first saw this recipe over at Kristen’s blog. I thought I had all the ingredients; doesn’t everyone have a chocolate cake box mix in the pantry? And, I thought I had the cherry pie filling for when I crave my favorite summer dessert.
But, sadly I could not make this cake on the spot. I had to make a run to the grocery store.
Of course, I still found a way to screw up this recipe because I only bought one can and when I pulled up the recipe online I realized it required two cans of cherry pie filling.
Does anyone else have recipelexia?
So yes I screwed up a three-ingredient recipe, but it still tasted amazing. I can only imagine how cherry delicious a second can of cherry pie filling would taste! Yum! Oh, and pick up ice cream or whipped topping!
