10 Best Recipes with Canned Cherries

Whether you like your desserts chewy, crunchy, crispy, or soft, there’s something on this list for you.

From cakes and pies to cobbler and cookie bars, I promise you won’t be disappointed.

So stock up the pantry, don your best apron, and let’s make some tasty canned cherry recipes!

Slice of Heaven on Earth Cake

1. Heaven on Earth Cake

If you enjoy desserts that are cool and as fluffy as puffy clouds, you’ll love this heaven on Earth cake. 

Between the taste and the texture, you might even start believing that you pulled a few of these ingredients straight down from heaven.

Despite how incredible it is, it’s relatively simple to make.

You’ll only need seven easy-to-obtain ingredients and about 20 minutes to pull it together.

If you pre-buy your angel food cake, you won’t even have to do any actual cooking! 

Most of the creamy, silky texture comes from the pudding, whipped cream, and yogurt.

The cherry pie filling gives it a tart sweetness, and the almond slivers add a little texture and crunch.

2. Mini-Cherry Cheesecake

Is there anything better than cherry cheesecake? Well… yes. 

Bite-sized mini-cherry cheesecakes that you can make using only eight ingredients are the best. Want a little more good news?

You can make four dozen of them in about 35 minutes.

Each cake is just enough for one delicious mouthful – or maybe two – with a soft, tender crust and a single dollop of cherries in the middle for filling. 

Best of all, they’re tiny, so you’ll have plenty of excuses to eat a few of them all in one sitting.

3. Cherry Pie

There’s something about cherry pie that brings such a good dose of nostalgia.

With this easy recipe, no one has to know the filling came from a can and didn’t take hours of hard work.

The lovely latticework on top looks fabulous and adds a touch of elegance. But in reality, you can have it ready for the oven in just 10 minutes. 

4. Cherry Dump Cake

This recipe, too, requires only 10 minutes of prep work, followed by 50 minutes of baking. The ingredients list is pretty short, too. 

All you’ll need is cherry pie filling, crushed pineapples, pecans, butter, yellow cake mix, and some coconut flakes.

The result is something that’s about 50% pineapple upside-down cake, 50% cobbler, and 100% insanely good. 

It’s soft and sweet, with just enough crunch from the pecans to add some textural contrast.

It tastes even better with whipped cream on top. 

5. Easy Cherry Cobbler

You have to love a dessert with the word “easy” in the name, and this easy cherry cobbler is not misnamed. 

Requiring only six ingredients and 10 minutes of prep work, this cobbler will amaze you.

It’s hard to believe something so simple tastes so phenomenal.

The crust is thick and rich like homemade biscuits but soft and spongy like cake.

Though if you prefer something with bite, try this cherry crisp recipe.

6. Cherry Pie Bars

These homemade cherry pie bars take more time and ingredients than many of the other recipes on this list, but they’re worth the effort. 

The crust is just slightly crispy and covered in a scrumptious homemade glaze. The filling is warm, gooey, and wonderfully fruity. 

Whether you serve them as a dessert or as a special treat for breakfast or brunch, they’re sure to be a hit. 

7. Cherry Cheesecake Angel Food Roll

Any type of rolled dessert can be intimidating. 

However, as long as you get the timing right – and the recipe has precise instructions on how to do this – you can quickly and easily make this roll in just 40 minutes.

The outside is soft and tasty, thanks to the additional frosting and filling you’ll pile on top.

The inside is layer upon layer of tart, creamy goodness. 

8. Chocolate Cherry Brownie Parfait

If you love the rich, flavorful tastes of chocolate and cherries, you’ll go nuts for this chocolate cherry brownie parfait. 

This layered treat features brownie squares on the bottom, followed by a layer of cherry pie filling, then another of “jazzed up” whipped cream. 

Then, if your glass is large enough, you can double or even triple that with a few more layers.

Just be sure your final layer is the whipped cream. 

You can even add a candied cherry, chocolate or caramel drizzle, or crushed nuts to the top.

9. Cherry Chocolate Pudgy Pie

Imagine a grilled cheese, except instead of cheese, the filling consists of cherries, almonds, and melted chocolate chips. 

Why yes, that is a little drool you see at the corner of my mouth! 

Seriously, though, these take 10 minutes to make in a sandwich iron.

You can even make them in a stovetop skillet if you don’t have a sandwich iron available.

Spending 10 minutes and using four ingredients to make something so yummy?

Why in the world wouldn’t you make them?

10. Cherry Cheesecake Cupcakes

Ah… the three C’s: cherries, cheesecake, and cupcakes. These tasty treats are certainly a triple threat.

They take a while to cook but only 10 minutes to prepare. 

They’re tasty, beautiful, and they even smell good! Plus, they taste even better the next day after you make them. 

If you’re looking for a way to save time, bake several large batches at once and freeze all the leftovers before adding the filling. 

When you’re ready to enjoy them later, grab them, warm them, and add your filling!
