This recipe for Cherry Almond Cake Bars is so easy to make and quite delicious. I like making it for family gatherings or potluck dinners at church. My husband loves the moist cake, and the dots of cherries with glaze and almonds makes it pretty enough to serve for holiday occasions. Some people have even mistaken them for a simplified version of Kolaches. You be the judge.

Serving Cherry Almond Cake Bars

The best part is it’s easy to put together, making it a great recipe when you have last-minute company or just need a quick dessert to serve. And who doesn’t like the ease of using a cake mix? I like to use a white cake mix, or if I can find it, a Sour Cream White Cake mix. Betty Crocker is my go-to brand, but Duncan Hines would also work. Just make sure it has pudding in the mix, to ensure a moist dessert! See my Cake Mix Recipes Here.
