1 box Duncan Hines devil 's food cake mix
1 - 21oz. can cherry pie filling
2 large eggs
1 tsp. pure almond extract
In a mixer, combine all ingredients and beat on low for 1 minute. Stop the mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Increase speed to medium and beat 2 minutes more. The batter should look thick and well blended. Grease a 13 x 9 x 2 cake pan and place oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour batter into cake pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Place the cake in the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes--test with a toothpick for doneness. Remove cake from oven and cool on wire rack. Use our icing recipe #2 for vanilla icing.
