Stupid Simple Crock Pot Chocolate-Cherry Cake

Renée G.


My sister first told me about this a few years ago and I thought surely she must be just sounded too, too simple. There had to be more to it than this. Well, there isn't and since that time I've used the same technique with peach pie filling, yellow cake mix and added two caps full of almond extract to the pineapple juice/butter mixture while it was set aside.
