Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Be sure to drain the cherries well to help keep them afloat and prevent them from staining the white batter pink.
This recipe calls for miniature chocolate chips instead of regular, which sink to the bottom. Sometimes smaller is better!
If you can’t find Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy cherry frosting, use vanilla instead. Stir in red food color until frosting is tinted a pretty shade of pink.
