Quick Cherry Dessert

Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 16
Categories: Cakes / Desserts

1  cup  Butter or margarine
1 1/2  cups  Granulated sugar
4    Eggs
1  teaspoon  Almond extract
2  cups  All-purpose flour
2  teaspoons  Baking powder
1  can  (21oz) Cherry pie filling
    Powdered sugar to dust over
    Top, optional

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Add the almond extract. Stir in the flour and baking powder. Mix until smooth. Butter a 13x9-inch cake pan. Turn the mixture into the pan. Spoon the pie filling into the cake, in 16 spots, spacing 4 spoonfuls evenly in each direction. Bake at 350F for 45 to 50 minutes or until golden and cake tests done. Filling will sink into the cake while baking. To serve, cut into 16 pieces. Place bottom side up on serving plate. Dust with powdered sugar, if used. Spoon slightly sweetened whipped cream over each serving, if desired. This is great served warm! Note: For blueberry dessert, substitute blueberry pie filling for the cherry filling.
