Like Water Cake


  • 1 box chocolate cake
  • 1 can cherry pie topping
  • 1 can pineapple rounds
  • 1 1-pound bag chocolate morsels
  • Heavy cream
  • Oil
  • Cocoa powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 350º F.
  2. Make box cake according to directions, but divide the mixture into two 9x9” pans. Allow to cool completely before moving on.
  3. Meanwhile, slice each round in half so that you have two thinner rounds. Lay the rounds on a foil lined baking sheet and bake in the 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes, turning once.
  4. Level the cakes and then layer, spreading the cherry pie topping over the first layer.
  5. Melt the chocolate with the cream over a double boiler and then pour half the mixture over the cake. Allow to harden. Then loosen the remaining chocolate with the oil and pour on the remaining chocolate.
  6. Dust with cocoa powder and decorate with pineapple slices.
