Sour Cream Cherry Torte

15 Dec

Mom – I know you’re reading this!! You always used to make this cake because its simple and easy and I loved it every time. Brings back so many memories every time I take a bite. Love you!

16 oz sour cream
1 stick of unsalted butter (melted)
1 cup of sugar
3 eggs
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 dash lemon juice
1.5 cups of flour
1 jar of cherry pie filling (or fruit of your choice)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine melted butter, sour cream, eggs, and sugar in a bowl and stir until combined. Put in 1/2 tsp of baking soda and splash a dash of lemon juice over it to activate it. Stir mixture again. Finally, slowly add flour, 1/2 cup at a time until combined. The consistency should be like pancake batter, not too watery but not too thick. Add the jar of cherry pie filling slowly, trying to divide evenly throughout. It will go right on top – the cake will bake between the fruit.

So delicious!! Enjoy 🙂 this is one of my favorites!
