Coal Miners Cake


This is so good! Very rich and moist. Icing is like fudge. This recipe was received from Virginia, an internet friend. Thanks, Virginia!

1 box Devil's Food cake mix
1 can cherry pie filling
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix all together. Pour into greased 13x9x2" baking pan. Bake at 350 deg. for 30-35 minutes. While cake is hot, cover with topping.

Topping:

Combine in saucepan:
1 stick margarine
1/4 cup evaporated milk
1 cup sugar

Bring to a low boil and boil one minute. Remove from heat and stir in:
1 6-ounce pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped nuts (see note)

Pour over cake.

*Note: She uses black walnuts. I used English walnuts and it was great.

Note2: I goofed on the icing and only put 1/2 stick butter instead of 1 stick and the icing was still good. Thick, had to spread it, but had texture of fudge. Judy
