Cake Mix Cherry Cheesecake


  • 1 pkg yellow cake mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp canola oil
  • 2 (8 oz) pkg. light cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 3 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 2 (21 oz) cans Lucky Leaf Cherry Pie Filling


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Spray a 9 x13 pan with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Measure out 1 cup of cake mix and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the remaining cake mix, 1 egg, and canola oil. Stir until most and crumbly.
  4. Press the mixture into the prepared 9 x 13 pan covering the bottom and ¾ up the sides of the pan.
  5. In a mixing bowl, beat together cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Then beat in the remaining 3 eggs one at a time.
  6. Add the reserved 1 cup of cake mix to the cream cheese mixture and beat for 1 minute.
  7. Once combined slowly mix in the milk, lemon juice and vanilla to the cream cheese mixture until combined and smooth.
  8. Pour the mixture into the prepared crust.
  9. Bake at 300 for 45-55 minutes until the center is set. It will still wiggle a little but will be more like set gelatin.
  10. Allow cheesecake to cool completely and then refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  11. To serve, cut into squares and top with pie filling. Serves 20.
