NC Griller's Note:
This is the most moist cake I have ever tasted. The cake has only 4 ingredients from the Cake Mix Doctor (with a little bit of personal tweaking). Yummy! I have used several different types of chocolate cake mix and both sugar-free and regular cherry pie filling with excellent results. Store cake covered in aluminum foil at room temperature for up to 5 days. Better if served at room temperature. Can be frozen by wrapping in foil for up to 6 months,
