While I've made my fair share of cakes from scratch, I'm all about doctored cake mix cake recipes.
My famous decadent chocolate bundt cake is a prime example of amazing cake mix cakes. Of course, that rich, chocolate glaze doesn't hurt!
This easy cherry cake is just that—totally easy! It's kind of hard to believe it tastes as good as it does when the only ingredients are white cake mix, eggs, baking powder, vanilla extract (I love Watkins), almond extract, and cherry pie filling.
The recipe gets even easier thanks to a tub of whipped topping in place of canned or homemade frosting. Believe you me, the whipped topping is perfect for this cake!
If you want more cherry pie flavor, you could always top each slice of cake with a dollop of cherry pie filling (Comstock cherry pie filling is my fave) or even try a spoonful of maraschino cherries.
I'm more of a simple girl so I left it as is—no one complained in the slightest!
Can't get enough of that yummy cherry flavor? Try this delish cherry pie salad. It's always a hit!
