We used to call this Fruit Magic when Mom made it back in the 70's when I was little. So yummy we often asked for it instead of birthday cake.
This was so easy to put together! We look forward to the next time I make it.
I add 1 tsp. of vanilla to white and yellow cake mixes to take away the cakebox flavor. Hope this will help others to be happier when they need to use a box mix.
I have used this recipe with other pie fillings besides cherry or blueberry! I've used blackberry, strawberry, lemon, raspberry & apple pie filling. To the apple pie filling, I add 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon & 1/4 tsp. nutmeg & 1 Tbsp. lemon juice(MAY use either ReaLemon bottled lemon juice 0R fresh squeezed lemon juice.
I also add about 1 cup raisins, with 1/2 to 1 cup boiling water to plump them up, then I let the raisins sit 20 minutes & drain off the water before adding to apple pie filling!
I'd meant to say I'd ALSO used different flavors of pie fillings! Dawn E. Lowenstein
I meant to say I've used this recipe, using other flavors of pie filling besides cherry-the best ones to me are: apple, blueberry, raspberry, strawberry, lemon filling! I take it to our chapel for fellowship time & it's a hit with everyone! When I use apple pie filling, I add 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon & 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg, 1 Tbsp.lemon juice, mix it together & I also add about 1 cup raisins, soaked in boiling water for about 20 minutes & then drained.
I think the apple-raisin filling is a treat!
