Cherry Cream Cake

I'm always looking for excuses to make desserts that will find their way into someone else's possession. If I make any kind of sweet treat and I don't remove it from the premises, it will surely get eaten by ME! I have a terrible sweet tooth, so much that I rarely bake at all. The other reason, I recently discovered, is the additional mess, dishes and time in the's exhausting! Since baking can't take the place of dinner...and that would still need to be prepared by me, it makes for an overly tiring and extended time in the kitchen...oh my achin' back!

So, for a scrapbooking outing over the holidays, I made this quick and easy Cheery (I should call it "Cheery" Cream Cake because every time I type the word "Cherry" it come out "Cheery") Cherry Cream Cake. Tastes especially good warm!

Cherry Cream Cake
1 white cake mix
3 eggs
2 cans cheery pie filling (21 oz.) divided
powdered sugar
whipped cream topping

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix cake mix and eggs together. Stir in one can of the pie filling, but don't over stir so you get a swirling effect. Pour batter into a greased bundt pan. Bake 40 to 50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. While still hot, invert onto a round platter and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve warm pieces of cake with remaining pie filling and whipped cream.



  1. Hi Denise. I just found you on Milliande's gathering of beautiful people and inspiring artists and came to visit your blog and saw this luscious cake staring at me. I drooled. Love the technique of your abstract landscape as well, mind you, but I must be hungry this morning. Have a wonderful day and I have you in my RSS feed to keep up with you. ;)

  2. It's me again. The RSS feed is what I use to create a page on my iGoogle home page. There I have tabs and one of them is for blogs I follow. Makes it a bit easier to find for me than in the Reader. I have the Reader also but it's up to over 1000 now and I really get frustrated when I am searching for a blogger. Hope this helps. Have a wonderful day!
