Oh my! This has to be one of my favorite cakes to date. This uses a boxed white cake mix as the base, but I do want to try it again with a from scratch white cake recipe. I used my homemade cherry pie filling in this, but you can use any canned cherry pie filling. The cherry and almond flavoring is always a flavor match made in Heaven, so it was no surprise how much I loved this cake! I chose to make a cream cheese frosting with a bit of cherry pie filling whipped into it. I'm sure it would be amazing with a bittersweet chocolate ganache and/or mini chocolate chips baked in. A winner for sure!

Ooooo... I love cherries, so must try this. I remember my Mother making a chocolate cherry cake from scratch (with marachino cherries) that was also delish... Thank you so much for your lovely recipes and photos! Love them! =]

About Me
My favorite things to cook
I love baking, especially cookies and cakes. :) I love cooking too, but I like to experiment, which can occasionally mean take out! ;)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up in the convenience food era. My parents were divorced and I was a latch key kid. There weren't a whole lot of home cooked meals in my childhood, but lots of packaged and frozen goods. I try to make dinner every night for my family, though sometimes it's take out due to sports activities, etc. I'm envious of those that have their grandmother's recipes, I don't have anything like that.
My cooking triumphs
i've created a few recipes of my own, one I even won a contest for :) I love experimenting and finding new ways to combine flavors. I feel triumphant every time I bring something to my neighbors, they always give me rave reviews!
My cooking tragedies
I try to prepare whatever I can early in the day, so that the hectic afternoon is less... well, hectic! I tend to be pretty frugal, so I'm always pantry diving. I also menu plan every week, it saves me from A) running to the store in the middle of the week and B) getting take out.
