Cherry Vanilla Crunch Cake

Vanilla bean paste is one of my favorite new ingredients.  It really gives such a stronger vanilla flavor compared to just extract.  But if you don’t have any, you really should still make this.  The cherries kind of bake in to the cake a little, and the crunch topping just perfects it.  You could put the pie filling on top of the cake batter, but I really wanted to cake to stay white.  Either way I think you’ll like it!  And yes, I used home canned pie filling, but you can use store-boughten as well.  I won’t tell anyone.
