Cherry Nut Cake
1 Good quality yellow or white cake mix
1 cup sour cream
½ cup cooking oil
10 ounces of maraschino cherries (I get mine at Dollar General for one dollar)
In your little grinder put all the cherries, ¼ cup of the cherry juice and grind.
3 large or extra large eggs
1 cup of finely cut toasted pecans
Mix good with mixer.
I put mine in 3 layers, watch carefully does not take long to cook, not over 20 to 25 minutes.
You can put it in a long pan, no difference, easier just takes longer to cook about 40 to 45 minutes.
I cook mine at 300
After cake is cooled ice with this icing.
1 stick of margarine
8 oz cream cheese
1 tablespoon of vanilla
½ bottle of cherries (like 5 oz) grind it in the grinder, a coarse ground
1 lb of powdered sugar
A little bit of the cherry juice as you are mixing it.
After cake is iced sprinkle all over with toasted finely chopped pecans.
This is a great cake!! And easy!!
