Happy Friday! Any fun and spooky weekend plans?
There’s chatter over something more than just Halloween in my neck of the woods. Apparently, there’s a crazy hurricane on the way here. This will make 2 years in a row that a freak storm will have ruined October 31st and all that goes along with it. Some say it’s still too soon to tell, but the mobs of people packed into the grocery stores believe otherwise.
I don’t know about you, but when there’s threat of a massive power outage, I believe it’s time to stock up on sweets. This can be whipped up in an instant, and will definitely keep you safe and cozy while you worry about a tree falling on top of your house :/
Quick Black Forest Cake
heavily adapted from Allrecipes
1 box devil’s food cake mix
1 tablespoon almond extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix cake mix, eggs, almond extract and chocolate chips. Stir until just combined. Pour equal amounts into two prepared 9 inch round pans. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Let layers cool completely. Place one layer on serving dish, then top with cherry pie filling. Add top layer, then frost cake.
