Fruit and chocolate can be best friends like in this delicious Lion House Cherry Chocolate Cake recipe. You’ll be thrilled to know that it is very much possible to make a divinely moist and fudgy cake dripping with chocolate with just as little as three ingredients! You can probably get your kids to make this recipe because it is ridiculously easy and straightforward to make. Another reason why easy dessert recipes are extremely convenient to make is the simplicity of the dessert with little efforts when you have an event planned at the last minute. This recipe uses canned cherry pie filling that helps in keeping this chocolate cake moist for days. Even though this chocolate cake recipe uses a cake mix, it still tastes decadent, and your guests won’t even know that it’s from a box. Although, if you prefer to make your personal favorite chocolate cake recipe from scratch you can do so by all means. For a delicious, unforgettable dessert experience, you can serve this cake with anything from chocolate ganache, a scoop of ice cream, whipped cream or even with custard drizzled on top.

Though this recipe is perfection on its own, there is nothing wrong with changing up the flavors a bit. After all baking cakes is an art and makes the process of baking a whole lot of fun when you try new variations. For example, in the place of chocolate cake mix, you could also try a white or yellow cake mix. You can also try other canned fruit like blueberries, strawberries or even pineapple. You could brush brandy or rum on the cake when it’s fully baked. If you don’t have the time to make the chocolate frosting, you can smear a generous amount of Nutella over the cake or mix it with cream cheese to add a bit of tang. For an excellent presentation, you can crumble Toblerone pieces on top or add white chocolate shavings along with a round of freshly cut fruit like kiwis, strawberries or more cherries. These are some great kids birthday cake ideas that add more fun to the occasion.

Just remember when mixing the ingredients together, do not let the cherries break to little pieces. This might ruin the look and texture of the cake. The best way to mix the ingredients together is either by using a sturdy whisk or with a rubber spatula. Using a cake mixer might be a bit too strong of speed for this recipe.
