Cherry Nut Cake

July 22, 2019Teresa

Cherry Nut Cake is awesome. It has everything going for it. It starts with a Cherry Chip Cake Mix. I added a box of instant vanilla pudding, fresh cherries, coconut and pecans. It baked up perfectly in my stoneware bundt cake pan. After the cake cooled, I iced it with a very easy powdered sugar glaze. Yeah, this is my kind of cake.

I grew up eating a lot of pies and cakes. My mom was a prolific baker. We had a dessert for every lunch and dinner meal. No kidding. Yes, she made cobblers and a lot of cookies too. Mom really spoiled us with desserts.

I received a 20-pound box of fresh cherries from the Northwest Cherry Growers a couple of weeks ago. I went back to a recipe I had in my cookbook for decades. I found a Cherry Chip Cake Mix at Kroger. I added the fresh cherries. What a terrific cake recipe Cherry Nut Cake turned out to be. Mom would have been proud. (She and Dad would have eaten their share of it too!)

Cherry Nut Cake is a delicious recipe to add to your collection of Cherry Cake recipes. This one is absolutely mouthwatering and will surely cure any sweet tooth craving you have. But you’d better hurry. Fresh cherries will only be available for a few more weeks. Enjoy.
