In our grocery store they sell single slices of cake, which is genius and I also kinda hate them for that. So tempting!

I saw a single slice of Black Forest Cake and something clicked in my brain. I always see Black Forest Cake in it’s layered cake form, but never really in a sheet cake. That’s when I decided I should make one.

Best. Decision. Ever.

I started with a box of devil’s food cake mix and added some eggs, a little almond extract and a whole can of cherry pie filling.

That’s it! That is the base of your sheet cake! Spread the mixture out in a baking sheet and let it bake.

Since it’s so thin it bakes up in just 20 to 30 minutes. Mine was done at 25 minutes.

It’s a little lumpy when baked due to the big cherries throughout the cake, but that’s ok.

You’ll pour this warm chocolate frosting all over the cake and it’ll settle into all the nooks and crannies.

The trick is to have the frosting ready right when the cake comes out of the oven, that way it glides on nice and smooth.

I let the cake and frosting cool completely and then topped it with fresh whipped cream, a few extra cherries and some chocolate shavings… cause Black Forest Cake.

If you wanted to enjoy the cake warm you could do that too!

Serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a couple cherries on top… oh mama!

I made this cake for a little family gathering at my house and there were so many people that went back for seconds. It was such a good cake!

The cake itself is light and fluffy with jewels of sweet cherry throughout. The frosting is thick and rich and almost fudge like, it’s the perfect paring.

I love how easy it was to make too! Definitely making this one again!

Ingredients

    For the Cake:
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 box Devil's Food cake mix
  • 2 (21oz) can cherry pie filling, divided
  • For the Frosting:
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 5 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • For the Topping:
  • 1 1/2 cups cold whipping cream
  • 3 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 chocolate bar for shaving

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a half sheet baking sheet (15"x10"x1") with baking spray (the kind with flour in it) and set aside.
  2. For the Cake:
  3. Whisk together the eggs and almond extract in a large bowl. Add the cake mix and 1 (21oz) can cherry pie filling. Whisk until combined and then spread the mixture evenly into the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 23 to 27 minutes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  5. For the Frosting:
  6. Meanwhile, while the cake is baking, prepare the frosting. Combine the milk, sugar and butter in a small saucepan on medium high heat, stirring often, until melted. Bring mixture to a boil for just 1 minute then remove from heat and add the chocolate chips. Stir until mixture is smooth.
  7. Pour the hot frosting over the warm cake and spread out to edges. Let cake and frosting cool completely (or serve warm with vanilla ice cream).
  8. For the Topping:
  9. Use a hand mixer or mixing bowl to beat the whipping cream in a medium bowl until soft peaks form. Add the powdered sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form.
  10. Decorate the top of the cake with the whipped cream and extra cherry pie filling. Use a vegetable peeler to shave off bits of chocolate from the chocolate bar to garnish the top of the cake. Slice and enjoy!
