My sister-in-law got in touch with me a few weeks ago because she wants to make my brother's favorite cherry chip cake for his birthday, and can't find the cake mix anywhere. I agree ... it's hard to find! I wanted to see if I could make a doctored version that tastes just as good.
I used this recipe, substituting chopped white chocolate chips for nuts. The frosting is vanilla buttercream with a quarter tsp of cherry flavoring. I used water instead of milk and chopped up the cherries and chips with my mini food processor.
Results? Delicious! It's been a long time since I've had cherry chip cake, but this tastes pretty darn close. And so priiii-tee. Would be a lovely Valentine treat!!
