Cherry Marshmallow Magic Cake

Total Time

Hey I live near Door County, how can I not have a few cherry recipes here? This cake is cool. The cherries sink to the bottom and the marshmallows melt and rise to the top for a glaze on this easy, tasty cake! *Note: I used a Betty Crocker Super Moist White cake mix for this. Other types of Cake mixes with pudding in the mix may require additional baking time. EDIT: The marshmallow flavor isn't really pronounced. It's the magic in how they rise up make everything come together.

I used the Betty Crocker Vanilla cake mix. I also used pitted cherries as I was not sure what pie filling was, but thought these might be one and the same. The marshmallows did rise to the top creating a very pretty effect on the top of the cake. I found the cake fell apart a little bit when cutting, but overall this is a very quick and easy and quite tasty recipe.

Very good. One question is where you suppose to be able to taste the marshmallows because I couldn't tell it had marshmallows in it.
