Vintage Recipe: Cherry Casserole Cake

I'm digging into old recipe boxes and rediscovering the family favorites hidden inside! You'll find carefully handwritten recipe cards, newspapers and magazines clippings and even some hastily scrawled directions on scraps of paper, all from years (and years) ago! They're all getting scanned and transcribed so you can enjoy them in your own home kitchen. 

This recipe for Cherry Casserole Cake has extra cherry goodness with cherry pie filling in the cake AND served on top! Try this recipe with other fruit pie fillings. It’d probably be tasty with any of them – peach, apple, blueberry…

Please note there is NO ADDED SUGAR in this recipe. There is only the sweetness that comes from the pie filling. Mr. LH didn't have a problem with this, especially with a scoop of ice cream on top. but I was hoping for more of a sweet taste, perhaps similar to a coffee cake.

The recipe was handwritten on both sides of a piece of 3x5″ scrap paper (sized perfectly to fit a small recipe box). It was found in an old large double sided recipe file box. The age of the recipe is unknown. See more recipes from this collection!

The original recipe has been scanned and is transcribed below. It can be printed for use in your own home kitchen. Enjoy!
