Cherry Pie Sheet Cake

Don't Lose This Recipe

I love a great sheet cake recipe! They are so handy for taking a lot of time at a meeting, because they feed a lot of people … and really, who doesn’t like cake, really. Especially one made from scratch, yes? I have several recipes in my archives that I love, including this wonderful almond butter sheet cake, this decadent Samoan sheet cake and my all-time favorite… Coconut Lime Sheet Cake.

This cherry pie sheet cake that I brought with you today is wonderful. The cake is buttery and rich and goes well with the slightly tart (but mostly sweet!) cherries. If you’re a cherry lover, I bet you’ll love this fun cake sheet.

Servings 24


  • 1 C butter, softened
  • 3 C flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 3/4 C sugar
  • 2 (21 ounce) cans cherry pie filling
  • 4 Tb milk
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 C powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • dash salt
  • 1 tsp almond extract


  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  • Beat together 1 3/4 C sugar and 1 C softened butter until light and fluffy. This should take about 2 minutes.
  • Add 4 eggs, one at a time, taking care to scrape the bottom of the bowl so that all ingredients are well blended.
  • In another bowl, mix 3 C flour, 1/8 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp baking powder. Add these dry ingredients to the creamy mixture. Mix for 1 to 2 minutes or until the mixture is smooth and shiny.
  • Spray a large cookie sheet with cooking spray. I like to use this Bakers Joy that has flour in it. It works great!
  • Spread 2/3 of the cake dough in the pan and smooth evenly with a knife.
  • Carefully pour 2 cans (21 ounces each) of cherry pie filling on top of the cake dough.Spread evenly with a knife.
  • Spoon remaining cake batter by spoonfuls over cherry pie filling. Spread it a little with a knife.
  • Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and the top is golden brown.Just like that! Let the cake cool completely.
  • Mix 2 C powdered sugar, 4 tablespoons milk, 1 teaspoon almond extract and a pinch of salt. Whip it with a fork until smooth. Pour the icing over the top of the cake.Serve and enjoy!
