Lazy Black Forrest Cake
I am not the biggest cake fan, but WAY back in university, my roomie (Kris) used to make this cake and then I adopted it as my own (as we all do with the best recipes we come across). It is the lazy way to make a REALLY amazing cake.
You need 1 chocolate cake mix (two round pans for cooking), vanilla instant pudding (don't do it with soy milk... just doesn't set), a can of cherry pie filling and cool whip. I told you it was easy!
After the cake bakes and cools, put the cherries on the bottom layer with a thin layer of vanilla pudding. The put the top layer on. Mix the rest of the pudding and cool whip together and "ice" the cake. You can put on cherries and chocolate shavings to make it all fancy-schmancy, but I like it just the way it is. Make sure to keep it in the fridge so the cool whip doesn't melt off.
