I made this one this weekend and it was wonderful!! Because I wanted more of a bar than a cake (see PatD's review) I used a Betty Crocker Fudge Brownie mix. We were out of almond extract so I omitted it (good excuse to make them again - must do it right to be fair you know ). The brownies were dense and moist. Warning note: If, as I am, you are trying to increase protein and reduce carbs, this is an extremely dangerous and murderously tempting dessert. Run away - I just couldn't! Thanks for posting this one!!

Excellent cake. I use a sugar free cake mix along with no sugar add cherry pie filling. Have not even iced it yet and doubt if I will. Love it just the way it is.

Delicious! I made it as a Valentine's treat for my boyfriend who LOVES chocolate and cherries. It was a big hit! And very easy. I think I earned extra points for making the icing (as described here) from scratch - I'll be using that alone for other recipes, too! <br/>I was a little unclear if I was supposed to add the other ingredients that the chocolate fudge cake mix box called for. Reading this recipe, it didn't seem like I was supposed to, but using just the egg and the mix and the cherries seemed like an awfully dry mixture, so I added a little water and all was fine.
