DIRECTIONS

  • Mix cake mix with cocoa, beaten eggs, almond flavouring, melted chips and oil. Use a two cup glass measure to melt the chips and oil. Add cherry brandy if using. Fold in cherry pie filling. Turn into greased bundt pan.
  • Bake 350 degrees for 55 minutes. The residue heat will finish the cooking. Cool, turn out onto a plate and glaze.
  • Glaze:
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  • 2 tbsp butter.
  • 2 tbsp table cream.
  • Microwave on medium the chips, butter, and milk until melted . Stir in 1/2 cup icing sugar ( optional ) Cool and pour over cake. I use the same two cup Pyrex measuring cup to melt the chips & oil to put into the cake, and save it unwashed to make the glaze. No point in wasting a bit of chocolate! One time I made it, I used a bit more cherries ( almost 1/2 can more ) and it was the best one yet! After I glazed it and let it cool, I dribbled some of the cherry goo over the glaze to keep it moist- went over huge in my home!
  • This cake is best made the day before to allow the flavours to get happy!
