Chef Mommie's Volcano Cake

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 0 mins

My PAC "Mom" had a birthday this wk (Chef Mommie). After looking at her birthday cake in the Photo Forum, I decided this recipe was just perfect for her next birthday. It doesn't have donuts as an ingredient, but I think she'll forgive me for not being able to find another donut cake for her. (Time to prepare & bake the cake is not included)

  1. Prepare chocolate cake mix according to pkg directions & bake in a bundt pan sprayed w/PAM. (Pls Note: Actual cake ingredients may vary from those listed above as they were shown to fulfill the editing process).

  3. When ready to share your cake at work, fill center hole w/scoops of ice cream. Top w/cherry pie filling (lava), drizzle some of it down the sides of the cake & give everyone a spoon.
  4. NOTE: For anyone who may opt to make this cake for reasons other than sharing your birthday cake w/co-workers, feel free to amend the prep as desired. :-).

I'm rating this on the opinion of DH and DS. They liked it and said that it was a good chocolate cake but didn't feel that it was really "Over The Top" special. DS said "I like it but it's just cake and ice cream with a cherry on top". Super easy to make and mine came out of the bundt pan very nicely with no sticks or tears. This would be perfect for a children's birthday party.

I'm not rating this because I didn't use the listed ingredients, I just stole the idea :) I used black cherries in syrup (as I can't get cherry pie filling) and whipped cream. The cake was a hit! I can't wait to try this with a lemon cake drizzled with passionfruit pulp!
