Almond Cherry Cake

This recipe is from the mother of my best friend Wendy from college.  We swaped recipes one day.  I gave her the salted toffee chocolate squares and she gave me this one.  It is an easy recipe to follow and makes a nice big amount for a dinner party. Not to mention how delicious it is!!! 



1 cup ( 2 sticks ) butter or margarine
1 1/2 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp almond extract
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 can cherry pie filling 

In a large mixing bowl cream together butter and sugar add the eggs beat until light and fluffy, add the almond extract stir in the flour and baking powder . mix until smooth.

Grease a 13x9 pan and turn mixture into the pan.  Spoon the cherry filling into the cake mixture in 16 spots and bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes or until cake is golden and the filling sinks into the cake while baking. Serve warm with whipped cream. Makes 16 generous pieces.
