When we were in Germany, Oma use to make the best Black Forest cake and bring it to us. It was amazing and I have never been able to get that taste exactly right. This recipe is very close and very convenient, since you use a Devil Foods cake mix and canned Pie Filling. This is a delicious recipe I hope you will enjoy....
