  • 1 Stand mixer or hand mixer
  • 1 Bundt cake pan


For the cake

  • ½ cup butter unsalted, softened
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs large
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 cup Cherry pie filling

For the glaze

  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • ¼ cup butter unsalted, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoon Milk


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Pray the Bundt pan with baking spray or grease with shortening and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Whisk in eggs and vanilla extract until smooth.
  • Add baking soda, all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, salt, vegetable oil, buttermilk and warm water. Whisk until smooth.
  • Pour half of the chocolate cake batter into the prepared Bundt pan. Scoop the cherry pie filling over the layer of cake batter. Using a tooth pick of knife, gently swirl the pie filling. Pour the remainder of the chocolate batter over the cherry pie filling layer.
  • Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs.
  • Cool Bundt cake in the pan for 5-10 minutes, then invert onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • While the Bundt cake cools, prepare the cream cheese glaze. In a large bowl, combine butter and cream cheese until smooth with an electric mixer. Add confectioners' sugar, one cup at a time, whisking slowly with electric mixer. Add milk, one tablespoon at a time, as needed until desired consistency is achieved. Glaze should be thick but pourable. Cover and set aside.
  • Once the Bundt cake has completely cooled, drizzle cream cheese glaze onto the top of the cake. Garnish with leftover cherry filling if desired. Serve and enjoy!
