Cherry Kuchen Bars

I love these Cherry Kuchen Bars which are really easy to make and taste delicious too. I cheat a little when I make these bars because I use a can of cherry pie filling. I find I can never make the pie filling as good as it tastes from the can! You can substitute cherry with any other flavor you prefer.

To make this Cherry Kuchen Bars recipe, start by preparing cake dough. Press the dough into a baking dish and bake for 12 minutes. Remove the cake from the oven and add cherry filling. Top with some of the remaining dough and return to the oven to bake for another 30 minutes. Make icing by mixing powdered sugar with vanilla or almond extract and some milk. Drizzle over the top of the cake and slice into bars.

To make the Cherry Kuchen Bars, you will need the following ingredients:
