I made this in a pinch once for something quick and was surprised at how good it was!Quick and easy to stir up, as easy as a cake mix, yet it tastes homemade! I used to receive regular recipe cards in the mail once and this was one of them. Great served warm with some cool whip.

I also got this in the mail on a card from Great American Recipes. It's actually really good. My hubby is a cherry freak. So this really tickles his fancy. Thanks for sharing this with everyone!
