Definitely going to try this for the holidays. Just want to confirm, you are baking this with waxed paper versus parchment paper? Also, wondering if this could be made with canned cherries (not pie filling)?

Hello Dawn! Yes, we used wax paper, but you can use parchment, too! This cake can be made with canned cherries, but not pie filling. Enjoy!

I will probably add some granny smith or macintosh apples instead of pecans

This sounds fantastic! Must try, especially for the Holidays. Just Perfect. Thank you for all your Great Ideas!! VP

I think this is a wonderful cake. I was thrilled to find this recipe. I am taking this cake to my friends house for our brunch.

Can I use a box cake mix instead of individual cake ingredients? Can the sour cream still be added?

I made this recipe for the first time and it was a hit! The sour cream in the cake batter makes it soooo moist. I used a pyrex dish in the oven, covered with the wax paper as described. Will definitely make again.

I will add this recipe to my book of desserts. I got all my recipe to a show entitled "Ace of Cakes". Unfortunately, Ace of Cakes and the celebrity baker who runs it, Goldman, will no longer be aired on the Food Network station after next year. Here is the proof: Food Network confirms final season for Ace of Cakes Ace of Cakes will begin airing its 10th and final season next year in January.

Husky Roasted Corn

Native Americans cooked their corn right in the husks over an open fire, and we think their idea is still best, 'cause it helps bring out flavors you can only get from roasting. We love making our Husky Roasted Corn right on the grill in the summer, and in our ovens when it's cooler out!
