  • 1 box (15.25 ounces) yellow cake mix
  • 2 (21 ounce) cans cherry pie filling
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 cup butter cold


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a 12-inch skillet or greased 9x9 or 9x13-inch baking dish, add the cherry pie filling and the almond extract. Mix together and spread it evenly over the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle the cake mix over the top, being careful to cover all of the pie filling.

  3. Slice the butter into small pads (about 16) and spread them out evenly over the top of the cake mixture.
  4. Bake for 1 hour or until the topping is golden brown and the pie filling is bubbling.
