  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 2 (21 oz) cans cherry pie filling
  • 1 tsp almond extract, divided use
  • 1/2 cup salted butter (1 stick), melted


  • Preheat oven to 350f degrees.
  • Spray a 9 x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Stir 1/2 tsp almond extract into each can of pie filling and stir.
  • Pour both cans of cherry pie filling into prepared baking dish.
  • Sprinkle yellow cake mix evenly over cherry pie filling.
  • Slowly pour melted butter all over the top of the cake mix.
  • Do your best to drizzle it all over. It won't cover all the cake mix.
  • Bake for about 50-60 minutes (until topping is golden brown)



This can be done in the crock pot as well. Cook on low for 4 hours or high for 2 hours.
