I made this cake for my father-in-law's birthday and it was so good! I left out the coconut because I don't like it and I loved the way it turned out!
Very, very good. I love cherry pie filling used in different things so this attracted me right away. The cake was so moist. I made it the way you said to do it but would leave out the coconut next time only because my hubby didn't care for the coconut in it. I liked it though. I will make this again. I may even try it with a white cake mix. It would be very pretty too. Even apple pie filling with a spice cake. Anyways, it was yummy and it is in my cookbook to stay. Thanks so much for sharing.
