  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Thoroughly grease a 9-inch Bundt(R) pan with shortening, then dust with flour. Shake off any excess flour from the pan.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, vegetable oil, eggs, vanilla extract, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt until thoroughly combined. Gently mix in the cherry pie filling, chocolate chips and nuts, and scrape the batter into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out with moist crumbs, about 1 hour. Allow to cool for 10 minutes, then invert pan and remove cake. Allow cake to finish cooling on a rack; sprinkle lightly with confectioners' sugar.

We have been making this recipe since I can remember. The only thing different is we spoon the batter into little cupcake holders. Then bake. Then sprinkle lightly with powder sugar. They are al...

It was okay, but tastes a little bit too much like a fruit cake. Too many nuts also.

Not a big hit in this house. Kind of dry. The cherries all sank to the bottom (the top when turned out of the pan). It was okay, but most of it was wasted. My son wouldn't even try it and my hus...

Very good but I couldn't get it to stay together.
