If I make this cake again, I will mix in the eggs, then gently stir in the cherry pie filling. I added the cherries and eggs together which caused the cherries to break up. Would have more flavor if the cherries were in bigger pieces.


Made this cake twice and got much better results when I sifted the cake mix to eliminate lumps, slightly beat the eggs before combining with other ingredients, and substituted cherry extract for almond extract. Fast, easy and delicious.


KEEPER! another reason to buy cake mixes and pie filling when on sale. I am more of a 'from scratch' person but am finding wonderful recipes here by embellishing on mixes. I had a can of blueberry pie filling I've been pushing out of the way forever. Used a CLASSIC WHITE mix and BLUEBERRY filling. used VANILLA EXTRACT instead of almond, and added 1/2 of LEMON'S ZEST to batter, as well as a handful of huge frozen blueberries. Don't be afraid of the batter. It reminded me of a bed I made once in nursing school whereby you had to be able to bounce a quarter off it...very strange batter...spongy; bouncy..baked for 32 min in a bundt pan. For frosting I halved the recipe and used WHITE CHOCOLATE CHIPS in lieu of the chocolate and added the remaining LEMON ZEST from the lemon....absolute perfection. Due to less surface area, it was perfect to halve the frosting recipe for bundt. I didn't taste the cake but the frosting is to die for...taking this to the dog groomer and she will love it coming from a little Shitzhu and Lhasa.
