My Bosses 65th Birthday is coming up and his wife has informed us that he loves Chocolate cake and Cherry Filling. I was looking in teh recipes and could not find one for Cherries. So if you know of a good recipe and would like to share it. That would help me out a ton! Thanks guys! icon_twisted.gif

Well the easiest thing to do would be to take a premade cherry pie filling and run it through the blender a bit. That should make a very tasty and good consistancy filling. Good luck! thumbs_up.gif

I would use the cherry filling that they have in the can and make it thicker with some conf. sugar.
You can also find a recipe for another type of fruit, like strawberry or something and do the same thing with cherry. Have you tried Food Networks site yet?

I am able to purchase cherry cake filling at our local cake store. I like to mix it with whip cream for more of a mousse. Or sometimes I do a layer of hot fudge, bavarian cream and then cherries to make like a boston cream pie....

Hmm.. well if you can find sour cherries (fresh or frozen).. you can make it.

2 pounds fresh pitted (make sure you keep the juice you get from pitting them) or frozen sour cherries
1 1/4 cups of sugar
4-5 tbsp quick cook tapioca (or cornstarch) with a little water to make a slurry
1 1/2 tsp real vanilla

cook cherries and sugar in a sauce pan until sugar is dissolved and cherries have broken down. Add the tapioca (or cornstarch) and stir until it boils and thickens. Let it cool.. and use it in your cake.

mmmmmmmm

you can use regular cherries too, but you will have to drastically reduce the sugar or it'll be WAY too sweet. The sour cherries make a better filling though IMHO.. icon_biggrin.gif

You can do the same thing with the cherry pie filling and add the whipped cream and make the mousse. That sounds really good too. And I think any supermarket would have it in the baking section.

More sugar thins the "syrup" not thickens. If you want to thicken it you're going to have to use a pectin or a little cornstarch. Think of it like making jam.

That person hasn't posted in 3 years. I would guestimate about 3 cups.

You don't think that is FromScratchSF?  I just figured she had a new name.

No, I highly doubt it.
