The abundance of cherries and the flavor of almond in this recipe are so teasing to the taste-buds.

This disappeared quickly at a family Easter dinner today. I thought this would be a dense cake but it was actually light and moist (which I liked). I will bake it in a sheet pan next time & cut in small squares. For the glaze I used some juice from a jar of cherries rather than water. The juice made it a pretty pink color. Since it was for Easter I sprinkled the cake with coconut and decorated with some jellybeans. Thanks for sharing your yummy & easy recipe Randy! Read More

This was just OK for me. I personally think a boxed plain cherry chip cake is better than this! sorry. Read More

This sold well at the bake sale this week. I also used cheery juice to make the glaze and sprinkled sliced almonds on the top to make it pretty. Read More

I needed a quick dessert today using a random box cherry chip cake mix I had in my pantry. I made my own cherry pie filling from two cans of dark cherries I had in my pantry (bought cheap last week for.99 a can at Grocery Outlet) with water lemon juice sugar a bit of vanilla extract and cornstarch. When I made the glaze I added a tablespoon of butter and a pinch of salt just like Grandma taught me for a quick glaze. I was able to use a boxed cake mix I had for a while that I really wanted to jazz up and two cheap cans of cherries which helps me in the long run when we move in a couple months. I appreciate you sharing your dessert Randy. This was great with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. Next time I might take Lilcat's suggestion and use either grenadine or marachino cherry juice to make the glaze instead of almond extract. I think that's a fabulous idea. Read More

Yummy! This was very simple to make and my family loved it! It was a lot lighter than I expected and it wasn't overly sweet either which was very nice. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I am giving this 5 stars because it was so so easy. I didn't use the glaze because I didn't think it needed it. Next time I will try the strawberry cake mix and strawberry pie filling. Read More
