  • 1 box (15.25 ounces) chocolate cake mix
  • 2 cans (42 ounces) cherry pie filling
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • ½ cup (1 stick or 113g) butter, cold


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a 12-inch oven-safe skillet. (You could also use a 9x9-inch or 9x13-inch baking dish.)
  • In the prepared skillet or 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.
  • Slice the butter into small pads (about 16) and spread them out evenly over the top of the cake mixture.
  • Bake for 1 hour or until the topping is golden brown and the pie filling is bubbling.
