Vegan Cherry Filling for Cakes, Tarts and Desserts!

Over the weekend we celebrated my daughter turning 3 years old. As a vegan, desserts is always tricky. So I decided to make everything from scratch to ensure it was vegan friendly. I wanted to bake a chocolate cake but I wanted to including a filling. I had so extra cherries that needed to be used up soon. So I began searching the web, I found this delightful website that had just what I was looking for.

A Cherry Filling is a simple, easy and effortless recipe that gets done in minutes and is an absolute treat you can use in so many different ways. Try a spoonful over your breakfast yogurt, stack of pancakes or waffles. Layer it between cake layers as a cherry cake filling, spread it in a prebaked crust as a cherry pie filling or spoon over your favorite desserts and ice creams and cherry dessert topping.
