Easiest cherry cake

    50 min

    A quick and easy cake using tinned cherry filling. There's hardly any washing up, because you mix all the ingredients right in the baking tin!! You can use another fruit filling, if desired, and can also use pecans or almonds instead of walnuts.

    made this using summer fruits pie filling and made 30 small cakes  -  02 Mar 2014


    This cake was really quick. I have to confess, I needed a dessert in a hurry so I used a boxed Confetti cake mix. I toasted the walnuts and didn't mix the pie filling in All the way, made it swirly. Nice way to be creative Janice!! Thank You Cherry Much!
