I came up with this recipe when I was hungry for a black forest dessert but didn't want all the fat and calories. It doesn't get any easier than this either because there are only 3 ingredients and one pan. I'm sure you could make many variations with other pie fillings/cake mixes/sodas

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (20 ounce) cans no-sugar-added cherry pie filling
  • 1 (12 ounce) can diet cola
  • 1 (18 1/4 ounce) box chocolate cake mix


  1. spread pie filling in 9 X 13" pan.
  2. spread chocolate cake mix on top of pie filling.
  3. pour cola over cake mix.
  4. Cover and bake at 350F for 20 minute Uncover and bake an additional 25 minutes.
  5. Serve with fat free cool whip or vanilla ice cream.

I made this recipe and it was a complete flop. I baked it at the temp and time it called for and it burnt and was not done. I threw the entire cake out. I will not make this again.
