One of my favorite dessert ingredients is cherries with my favorite ingredient being chocolate. Today I will share my recipe for Cherry Drop Cake. The cherry combined with almond extract makes a great tasting dessert.
CHERRY DROP CAKE
You will need:
1 cup butter, softened
1 ½ cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. almond extract
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 can cherry pie filling
Pre-heat oven 350 degrees
Cream, softened butter, sugar and eggs
Add extract, flour and baking powder, mix until smooth, batter will be thick
Turn batter out into a 9X13 greased pan, smooth out into pan
Spoon filling by dropping onto batter, DO NOT DUMP CHERRIES, your cake will not turn out right.
Bake for 40-45 minutes
Filling will sink during baking.
For decoration you can sift confectioner sugar on top of cake, slice and serve.
Tips: you can try other fillings like apple, but substitute vanilla extract for the almond
