Cherry Drop Cake

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.

You will need:
1 cup butter, softened
1 ½ cup granulated sugar
4 eggs
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.
Let cool.
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

  3. What a fun idea. I love the cherry pie filling in it and I can definitely see that you would not just want to dump the pie filling in instead of spooning it in. Thank you for sharing at Sugar and Spice Link Party.
