1 Cup Cheery pie filling from a 21 oz. can (save the rest for topping
2 Eggs (Cake1 )
1 Tablespoon Vanilla extract (Cake)
1 Stick Butter (Topping)
1/4 Cup Evaporated milk (Topping)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cake: Mix together cake ingredients — box mix, cherry pie
filling, eggs and vanilla — and pour into a 13-by-9-inch pan. Bake in
preheated oven for 30 minutes.
Topping: In a saucepan combine the butter, evaporated milk
and sugar, and bring to a boil. Stir in the chocolate chips and pecans,

can after using a cup of the filling in the cake. Pour topping over
cake while both the cake and the topping are still hot. Serve with
vanilla ice cream.
