Enjoying the Simple Pleasures of Life, While Living in a Complicated World

Black Forest Cobbler~ Easy and Decadently Delicious

I was looking for a very quick and easy dessert that didn’t require a great deal of time, and came up with this lovely, delicious and unusual dessert. If you serve it warm, it will have a wonderful texture similar to chocolate lava cake with a brownie topping. If you refrigerate it for at least 4 hours, it will resemble chocolate pudding with whole cherries with a brownie crumble on top. Positively easy, and so deliciously rich!  Enjoy!

 Black Forest Cobbler



1- Devil’s Food boxed cake mix
2- 12 ounce bags of frozen cherries
2 teaspoons almond extract
16 ounces cherry cola
( I used Cherry Pepsi, you can also use diet for cutting calories)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly butter the inside of a medium casserole, or 8 x 8-inch pan. Open and pour cherries into the bottom of pan. Sprinkle cherries with almond extract. Open cake mix package and sprinkle cake mix over cherries. Gently pour cola over cake mix until it is completely moistened. DO NOT stir. If you find large spots of dry cake mix, gently stir that area until moistened. Place in a preheated oven for 55-60 minutes. Let it cool for 15 minutes to serve warm with ice cream and it will resemble a lava cake. If you let it cool more than 4 hours, serve it chilled with whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It will resemble chocolate pudding with whole cherries and brownie crumbles. Absolutely decadent and very, very easy. A marvelous dessert for company, You can never, ever have enough chocolate!

    • This recipe is addicting….It’s also versatile. Serve it hot/warm and it’s similar to ‘lava cakes’. Chill it overnight, and you have a thick, chocolate pudding with cherries and brownie crust! Add ice cream or sweetened whipped cream and you’re in heaven! Enjoy!! Annie
