INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):

  • Prepare cake mix according to box directions, adding water to the reserved cherry juice to equal the amount of liquid needed for cake mix.
  • Preheat oven to box directions.
  • Fold the cherries and pecans into the cake mix; stirring by hand. Pour mix into 2 round cake pans and bake in preheated oven.
  • When cake has completely cooled, frost with whipped topping; serve and keep unused portions in refrigerator.
