Chocolate-Cherry Skillet Cake
3 egg whites, lightly beaten
1 can (21 oz or 520 mL) cherry pie filling
1/4 cup (50 mL) water
1/2 tsp (2 mL) almond extract

1 jar (11.75 oz or 250 mL) chocolate ice cream topping
1/3 cup (75 mL) toasted sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Lightly spray (12-in./30-cm) Skillet with oil. Whisk egg whites in large bowl; add pie filling, water and almond extract. Add cake mix; mix until well blended. Pour batter into Skillet, spreading evenly.
