Chocolate-Covered Cherry Cupcakes
- 1 package plain devil's food cake.
- 1 can cherry pie filling (21 ounces)
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
This recipe comes from Anne Bryn's book The Cake Mix Doctor and can be found on page fifty. The original recipe made a full sized cake with chocolate glaze -- I opted for cupcakes because they're easier to eat.
Preheat oven to 350.
Mix the cake mix, cherry pie filling, eggs and almond extract in a bowl. Blend.
Bake the cupcakes according to the package directions.
Frost and serve.
This is such a great and inexpensive way to dress up a simple box of cake mix. As someone who doesn't always enjoy cherries I didn't find the cherry flavor to be overwhelming, but rather a nice compliment to the chocolate cake. Everyone should add this to their to make list!
