The secret to a fantastic dessert is simplicity. After spending all your time and effort on that perfect rack of ribs or out of this world brisket, you want to round out the meal with something sweet and easy. This Cherry Cola Chocolate Pudding Cake is the answer. With an ingredient list shorter than your pinky finger and flavor that will wow your guests, this cake has it all! We like to get everything ready and throw it on the grill just as we are sitting down to eat our dinner. The cake is perfectly cooked, warm and bubbly as soon as we are done eating. Throw on a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream and dig in!
If you would like to make your cake more like a cobbler, just skip the stirring step and you'll have a more crumbly cake opposed to a gooey pudding cake. Either way is delicious!
Cherry Cola Chocolate Pudding Cake
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 30-40 minutes
Recommended Pellets: Cherry
1 jar (24 oz) cherry pie filling
1 box triple chocolate cake mix (look for boxes that advertise pudding in the mix)
1 cup of your favorite brand of cola
1 tablespoon butter
Start Traeger grill on Smoke with lid open for 4-5 minutes to establish the fire. Close the lid and turn the temperature setting up tp 350. Allow the grill to preheat for 10-15 minutes while you prepare the cake.
Using the butter, liberally grease a 9X13 baking dish or medium dutch oven.
Dump the entire can of pie filling into the pan.
Pour the cake mix directly on top of the cherries and pour in the soda.
Gently stir the cake and soda without disturbing the bottom layer of cherries. If you prefer a cobbler type dessert, gently swirl the soda into the cake mix without thoroughly mixing.
Place the pan directly in the preheated grill and bake 35 to 40 minutes.
Cool about 15 minutes before cutting and serving cake.
