Dump cakes are becoming increasingly popular. Partly because they are so easy to make, and with so many women in the work force today, an easy and fast recipe is the way to go. You do just what it says: dump everything in the pan and bake.

Dump cakes are so delicious. You can come up with so many different combinations, and they will all be awesome. The pumpkin one I already posted is so good; I haven't served it to anyone yet that didn't love it. That's just one. So I decided to do another one.

Chocolate and cherries are one of my favorite combinations ever since I was a little girl. We used to visit my sisters who lived in New Jersey after they got married. My father would stop at the same diner all the time, and I would get a cherry crumb pie with chocolate ice cream. It has become my go-to favorite dessert combination ever since. My daughter even makes it for my birthday. So it seemed only natural that I would love Black Forest cakes and to turn it into a dump cake.

I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I did.

        Hi Jackie, I can always count on you, my friend, for a visit and really encouraging comment. I had my hip surgery a couple of weeks ago and am just now getting on the computer. I made this about 2 months ago and just posted it now. Thanks again.
