Storage Information

Store any leftover cake in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2-3 days. The chocolate glaze may firm up slightly as it cools, but it will still taste delicious. If you prefer a softer glaze, you can gently reheat the cake in the microwave before serving.

Techniques and Tips

  • Be sure to grease the baking pan well to prevent the cake from sticking.
  • Mixing the cake batter by hand ensures that the ingredients are well combined without overmixing, resulting in a tender and moist cake.
  • Pouring the chocolate glaze over the partially cooled cake allows it to seep into the cake and create a rich and fudgy topping.
  • If you prefer a thinner glaze, you can add additional milk until you reach your desired consistency.


Feel free to customize this cake to suit your taste preferences. You can add chopped nuts or chocolate chips to the cake batter for added texture and flavor. You can also experiment with different flavors of pie filling, such as raspberry or blueberry, for a fun twist on this classic recipe.

FAQs about the Recipe

Can I use a different flavor of cake mix? Yes, you can use a different flavor of cake mix if you prefer. A chocolate cake mix will work well for a double chocolate cherry cake, or you can try a white or yellow cake mix for a slightly different flavor profile.

Can I use fresh cherries instead of canned pie filling? Yes, you can use fresh cherries instead of canned pie filling if they’re in season. Simply pit and chop the cherries, and toss them with a little sugar before adding them to the cake batter. Adjust the amount of sugar to taste, depending on the sweetness of the cherries.
