These Cherry Dessert Cake Bars are so easy to make and they taste wonderful. Make them for dessert and serve with ice cream or have them with coffee. Either way they are delicious and you can use any kind of pie filling in the recipe. They would be great to take to any gathering or to serve friends and family on game day or holidays
1 (15.25 ounce) box Pillsbury yellow cake mix (could use white cake mix)
1/4 cup butter or 4 tablespoons, melted
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (20 ounce) can cherry pie filling
1 cup coconut
1 cup nuts, (walnuts or pecans)
Mix the dry cake mix with the 4 tablespoons melted butter, milk, eggs and vanilla extract using a mixer. Spray a 10 x 15 jelly roll pan with cooking spray. (You can line pan with foil and then spray or do it without the foil) Spread the cake mix over the bottom of the pan. Drop the cherry pie filling by teaspoons on top of the cake mix. Sprinkle on the coconut and nuts. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. Drizzle on powdered sugar glaze below.
1 cup powdered sugar
3 to 4 tablespoons milk
Whisk together and drizzle over cake.
I cut this in serving size pieces and put in a large Tupperware container with foil between the layers. It keeps several days in the refrigerator and is good cold or reheated.
Makes about 12 large servings. Enjoy!
