Chocolate-Cherry Dump Cake

Sharing is caring!

Four ingredients only, for a chocolate cherry dump cake that is moist and delicious and packed with flavor. Great for a short-notice dessert.


  • 1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling
  • 1 (15.25 ounce) package dark chocolate cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract (Optional)
  • 1 (15.75 ounce) can prepared chocolate frosting


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Place cherry pie filling, cake mix, eggs, and almond extract in a large bowl and mix by hand. Pour into a greased and floured 9-inch square pan.

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes.

Cool cake on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Run a table knife around the edges to loosen. Invert carefully onto a serving plate or cooling rack. Let cool completely, at least 30 minutes. Frost with chocolate frosting.
