Cherry Cake

This is a little bit of a ‘cheater’ cake seeing that you use a cake mix, but the finished product belies that. This is yummy and great for the girls when they show  up for coffee. Hint: Keep your windows open while this is baking and your doorbell will probably ring.

  • 1- 18 1/4 ounce white cake mix
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 package dry yeast (1 tbsp)
  • 2/3 cup warm water
  • 2 large eggs
  • 21 oz. can of cherry pie filling
  • 1/3 cup butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine 1  1/2 cups cake mix, flour and yeast in a bowl. Add the lukewarm water, stirring until smooth. Stir in the eggs.

Spoon batter into a prepared 13 x 9 inch baking pan. Spoon pie filling carefully over the batter and set aside.

Cut butter into remaining cake,  mix with a pastry blender until crumbly. Sprinkle evenly over the pie filling. Bake for 25-30 minutes.

While cake is cooling on a wire rack, prepare the glaze and drizzle over the cake. Cut into squares. Note: If you would prefer Blueberry pie filling….go for it. This truly is a great dessert.


  • 1 cup sifted icing sugar
  • 1 tbsp. corn syrup
  • 1 tbsp. water

Mix together until blended and drizzle over the cake. YUM!
