Cherry Chip Cake

July 18, 2019Teresa

Cherry Chip cake is spectacular. This awesome cake delivers big on cherry flavor and vanilla flavor. It starts with a Cherry Chip Cake Mix. A whole bag of vanilla chips is added to the batter. The icing consists of powdered sugar, cream and a teaspoon of cherry extract.

Like I said, this cake packs a one-two punch. Cherry and vanilla. The cake itself uses only 6 ingredients. The icing uses 3. It’s actually a pretty easy cake to bake, all things considered.

I received a 20-pound box of fresh, plump, out-of-this-world cherries from the Northwest Cherry Growers again this year. I ended up making ten different desserts, including a Cherry Crisp, a Cherry Slab Pie, and a Cherry Pinwheel Cobbler.

Most of my desserts ended up going out to John’s office. They are always grateful when I send in goodies. I should be getting a box of stone fruit (perhaps peaches) at the end of the month. So they’ll be getting more fruit desserts then.

Cherry Chip Cake is made in a bundt pan. So let me give you a few hints if you’ve not cooked a lot in bundt pans before. Don’t ever cook strictly by time. Always use a knife inserted all the way to the bottom of the pan to determine doneness. The bottom seems to cook the very last. If the knife comes out with goo or seems a little on the moist side, the cake is NOT done. Keep cooking!

Also you must grease and flour the pan really well. The cake will fall out in clumps if you don’t cook it long enough. The cake will stick to the sides if you don’t grease and flour it well enough. I use a narrow rubber spatula and go around the outside of the cake to try to make sure it comes out well.

If you’ve had bundt cake fails before don’t give up. My first one (cooked when I was about 20 years old) flopped. It came out in clumps because I didn’t know how to check it for doneness. It was several years later when I finally figured out how to bake bundt cakes!

When you’re making the icing, be sure to use as little cream or water as necessary to get the thickest icing possible. The cake also has to be completely cooled before adding a glaze. Otherwise, the glaze will dissolve into the cake and you won’t be able to tell it’s there! 🙁

If you enjoy cherries and vanilla, you’ll love this amazing Cherry Chip Cake. It’s incredibly rich since the vanilla chips seem to dissolve into the cake. Give this heavenly cake a try while fresh cherries are still in season.
