Cherry Chocolate Cake

This Chocolate Cherry Cake made with Jell-O gelatin and Jell-O pudding tastes just like you are biting into a juicy cherry chocolate – maybe even better!  This is a variation on our Raspberry Lemon Cake that is also found on our website.  Both cakes make a cold, refreshing dessert.  The cake is so moist and the pudding makes a light and creamy frosting. You will notice in the recipe, we use less milk than what is called for on the box directions. Using less milk makes the pudding thicker and it holds it’s consistency better when spread on the cake. It is also important to use 2% or whole milk. This also makes the pudding thicker and creamier. There are many variations on this cake recipe that I have tried over the years. It is what makes this such a fun recipe! Because the combinations of cake flavors, Jell-O gelatin, and Jell-O pudding are limitless – the possibilities are endless.  I have always played it safe and stuck with a vanilla or lemon cake with fruit flavored gelatin and lemon or vanilla pudding.  I have been wanting to try a chocolate cake mix with cherry gelatin for a long time.  I finally did it – and the result was better than I expected.  It is so delicious!  If you are a fan of cherry chocolates, you are going to love it!

    Can’t you add the cherry jello powder into the cake mix prior to baking? This would save a step and time, I would think.

      We have never done it that way– so it may work! Let us know how it turns out!

    Would this work with cupcakes in place of the 9 x 13 pan? If so, how many holes should I make in each cupcake? Thank you in advance for your help! 🙂

    • Emily says:

      Yes! I would just do 3 to 4 holes in each one.
