Jekyll Island, GA by frances robson
Good evening and come on in for a visit and a new recipe.  I wanted to make something sweet today and the only mix I had was a German Chocolate so that was going to be the main ingredient.  I checked on Pinterest for recipes using this mix and found one called Apple German Chocolate Cake ,

It sounded so good but the only can of pie filling I had was cherry and when you live out in the country, you don't jump in the car and go to town for a can of pie filling so cherry it would be.  I didn't have walnuts either but I always have pecans for this is the South and pecans are necessary for our cooking.  This sounded like a good combination so I tried it and it is delicious.  It makes a moist, light cake and the cherry pie mix and pecans are really good so try it and let me know.

Cherry German Chocolate Cake
1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling
1 package (18-1/4 ounces) German chocolate cake mix
3 eggs
3/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans
1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips or regular chocolate chips chopped


Place pie filling in a blender; cover and process until the cherries are in chunks. Pour into a large bowl; add cake mix and eggs. Beat on medium speed for 5 minutes. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Sprinkle with nuts and chocolate chips.
Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire rack before cutting. Yield: 12-15 servings.

This is a quick and easy dessert that you will enjoy so try it and let me know what you think.  I am going to try the apple pie mix with a spice cake mix next time and I think that will be good also and will be sure and post it for you.

Ya'll be careful going home and come back to see me.

Nuff said,
The Georgia Peach

AnnMarie, I learned a long time ago to make do with what you have since we live in the country. Sometimes it's better with the substitutions.
