  • 1 box "pudding in the mix" devil's food cake mix
  • 1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling
  • 1 teaspoon rum extract
  • 2 eggs, beaten


  • 1 can chocolate fudge frosting
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 teaspoon rum extract


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cake: In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, cherry pie filling, rum extract, and eggs. Stir by hand until completely blended. Spray a 10 x 15-inch baking pan (9 x 13-inch works fine!) with cooking spray (or grease and flour it). Pour the batter into the baking pan.
  3. Bake for 20-30 minutes. It is done when a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  4. Cool completely.
  5. Frosting: Combine the canned frosting, rum extract, and pecans. Mix well. When the cake is completely cooled, spread over the top.
