Day 182: Raspberry Chocolate Cake

I'm late posting today after having some car troubles, so this will just be a quick one!

Raspberry Chocolate Cake
12' dutch oven

1 box chocolate cake mix
1 can raspberry pie filling
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts

Mix all the ingredients together with a wooden spoon until well blended. Pour into an oiled dutch oven and bake at 350° for 30 minutes.


1 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 cup chocolate chips

In a small dutch oven over low heat (I used 6 coals under my 10" dutch oven, mix ingredients together and stir until chocolate is melted and it is well combined.  Pour over warm cake.  Serves 12.

The Finished Product

The Review

Ooh this was good.  It has a really subtle berry flavor.  It was also really soft and moist.  The recipe originally called for cherry pie filling, but I am of the school of thought that cherries are better fresh than cooked.  You could use any pie filling you want.  For that matter you could use any flavor cake mix you want.  This is really versatile.  It is easy and yummy.  Grade B+.


  1. Not sure if you realized it... but with 365 days in a year, the half way mark is 182.5. Making this the halfway mark for this year long project.

    Only 182 days to go!

    This is going to make one hell of a book.

  2. I hadn't even thought about that! I can't believe I've been doing this that long. Other than finding new recipes, which is getting harder, the next 6 months will be a piece of cake!
