Bundt Cake #75: Chocolate Covered Cherry

You want to hear something funny about Bundt Cake #75...just moments after taking pictures of it...I dropped it in the grass.  Icing side down.  (Sigh)  I guess after 75 cakes, I was bound to drop one of them.  Why was I holding a cake in the grass you ask?  Because I photograph them outside and my dog was out there with me...well, she started barking at a golfer and I walked over to tell her to hush when BAM!  I dropped the cake in the grass.  Thank you Lord that I had already photographed it or else you would be seeing a picture of smashed up cake with grass stuck to it.

When I think of Valentine's Day, I always think of my parents.  My mom always buys my dad chocolate covered cherries for Valentine's Day.  Last year, I made Chocolate Covered Cherry Whoopie Pies in their honor, and this year, a bundt cake.  When I think of love, I think of my mom and dad.

Shopping List
1 box of white cake mix
2 small boxes of instant cherry gelatin (see below)
1/2 cup of veggie oil
1 1/4 cups of water
4 eggs
1 can chocolate frosting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Grease (I use Pam) a 10 inch bundt pan

In mixing bowl, combine cake mix, gelatin, oil, water and eggs with electric mixer.  Pour into prepared bundt pan.

Bake 40-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Let cake rest on counter in pan 10 minutes. Then, invert cake onto serving plate to finish cooling.

Frost cooled cake with your favorite chocolate frosting.

I was on the baking aisle contemplating which pudding mix I would add to this cake when I saw the cherry gelatin box right next to the instant pudding boxes.  They worked out beautifully!  Two small boxes (.13 oz each) make the cake a pretty red color while giving the cake a nice cherry flavor as well.  The cake just is Valentine's Day.  Love it!

Oh no! I hope you got to taste the cake! Funny story about dropping it in the grass, but I have a feeling it probably wasn't so funny when it happened! It sounds super yummy, though (minus the grass)! ;)

My suggestion for building a house is to walk through your house with a sharpie pen or a pencil just before the flooring is put in and write prayers and bible verses throughout your house.

I made this last week, using my substitutions for egg-free cake, but I left in the water since the addition of jello. Cake tasted yummy, but was very dense and moist. Going to try again and cut back on the water. We still ate it all!!

Thank for posting all of your fun festive recipes! Question from up here in Canada as our sizes tend to be different, when you say a box of white cake mix, is this a single layer cake mix or a double layer cake mix?
Thanks so much!!

Tricky question! Here, we can use one cake mix to make a double layer (8" per layer) or a single layer (9x13) cake. I would say get single! Enjoy!
