About this recipe: A really easy cross between cake and a tray bake using tinned cherry filling. You can use any other type of fruit filling that you wish. The key is to make sure that each square gets at least a couple of cherries!
I love this recipe, very quick & easy - I use a blob of whatever jam is in the fridge rather then the fruit filling and that works too! - 03 Jun 2014
I got this off of a recipe card in the mail from Great American Recipes. There's an ingredient missing that might make a difference - 2 tsp. of baking powder that needs to be added to the flour mixture. This can be baked in a 9x13 pan at 350 for 45 to 50 minutes. - 10 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My mom has made this simple, wonderful recipe for years! She calls it "Cherry Squares." Her recipe calls for 1 Tbl. lemon juice, but other than that, this recipe is the same. Mark the batter into 24 squares, and a good rule of thumb is to add about 3 cherries per square. I sometimes make this with blueberry pie filling instead of cherry. I love this recipe because if you have drop-in company, you can whip it up in no time, and I usually have the ingredients on hand already. In fact, I keep a can of cherry pie filling on the shelf just in case I need to make this. Thanks for the recipe! - 26 Aug 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
