Black Cherry Cake

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Laura O.

This is from the latest Taste of Home issue. This is a really moist cake that is so good we ate the whole thing in less than two days. I used the buttery version of white cake mix and regular cherry yogurt and regular whipped topping since I don't like low-fat desserts too much.

this is an amazing, simple cake! made it for the boyfriend's birthday. he's a black cherry nut so i used black cherry yogurt. it comes out so fluffy and moist and the cherry flavor kind of creeps up on you instead of hitting you in the face. tastes so much more complicated than it is! excellent!
