A light and easy-to-make cherry bundt cake! Delicious vanilla batter with a sweet surprise cherry layer baked inside, topped with cream cheese frosting!
PREP: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease bundt pan and set aside.
CAKE BATTER: In a large bowl combine the eggs, sour cream, apple sauce, oil & vanilla, mix until smooth. Add cake mix, pudding mix & water, mix until combined. Spread half of the batter into the greased pan. Spread batter on the sides and middle of the pan creating a slight valley.
CHERRY FRUIT FILLING: Spoon the cherry fruit filling onto the batter, careful to not touch the sides of the pan. Top with remainder of the batter. Bake for 45-50 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes and invert onto a plate, cool completely.
FROSTING: Combine cream cheese, butter & vanilla, gradually beat in powdered sugar until smooth. Frost the cake and enjoy!
What others are saying about this recipe
Made a Bundt cake per your recipe except used apple pie filling instead of cherry. The top stayed in pan. We were carful with half and half batter. What do you suggest?
Awesome cake- everyone in the family loved it.
This cake is AH-MAZ-ING!! Incredibly moist and the cherry filling is heaven. Stop what you’re doing and make this cake right now!
This cake got rave reviews at Thanksgiving dinner! Used blueberry filling, but any flavor would be spectacular. I was told not to lose this recipe. It’s definitely a keeper. Highly recommend!
I made this cake and it was way too sweet with the cherry pie filling in it. The cake itself was good. I wonder how it would be if the filling was mixed into the cake batter?
want to make this for Christmas. What size bundt pan is needed?
A little too processed. Am always aware of the chemically taste of preservatives.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this cake!
I made this cake for Christmas and it was such a great hit, I’ve made it 3 more times! It is moist, great with the added cherries and the cream cheese frosting is perfect. I top it with some chopped pecans to make it look pretty and to add a little crunch. It’s wonderful! Thank you for sharing this recipe with us!
Way too sweet maybe take out pudding mix take out a little thickening filling from cherry skip the frosting was please with cake though
I made this exactly like the recipe and it is delicious. How can I get the whole cake to come out of the bundt pan? I have never had the top of the cake and some of the cherries stick to the pan like this. It looked like a disaster but the flavor and moistness of the cake was wonderful. I did grease the pan as instructed. Any suggestions would be appreciated. thanks
