This crockpot cherry cake could even be called a Black Forest Cake if you want to swap out the name. Or even a crockpot chocolate cherry cobbler.

No matter what you call it, you can enjoy the cherry and chocolate combination. The Dr. Pepper adds the perfect texture to the cake making it light and airy from the carbonation.

Does A This Cake Need To Be Refrigerated

Due to the fruit in this cake you will want to refrigerate your cake! Just scoop the cake into an airtight container and then store in the fridge.

If you want a fresh warm cake, scoop into a microwave safe container and then reheat it for a little bit in the microwave to give it a warm feeling.

The variations are endless when it comes this cake recipe. Do apple pie filling and a yellow cake mix, paired with say lemon-lime soda.

Or opt for a cherry pineapple cake with a white cake mix and ginger ale as the soda. I would use drained crushed pineapple and a can of cherry pie filling.
