Easy as pie - nope even easier and prettier too! I used Betty Crocker Cherry Chip cake mix, but any cake of your choice will work just fine. I've always been a fan of a hint of almond with cherries and if you are too this will really work for you too.

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees
    Butter an 8 inch springform pan.
    Pour the cherry pie filling into the pan.
    Mix together the cake mix of choice with the cooking oil, 3/4 cup water and the egg yolks and beat for two minutes.
