Cherry Dump Cake

This is the recipe I used the other day - I meant to post it yesterday but I spent the day with Bertha. :) Pics of that project soon.

This is the original recipe - I have no idea where it came from, I've probably had it at least 25 years.

Cherry Dump Cake

1 can cherry pie filling
1 small can crushed pineapple
1 dry white cake mix
1 cup chopped pecans
1 stick butter

Pour filling in bottom of buttered 9x13 pan. Spread evenly. Spread pineapple over cherries by spooning out lightly. Spread dry white cake mix over pineapple. Top with pecans. Cut butter into slices and lay on top of pecans. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned.

This is how well I follow a recipe. I've always used that glass pan which I think is slightly smaller than 9x13, but not by much. I used apple pie filling (I've also used peach when I accidentally picked that up instead of apple!) I used a yellow cake mix because that is what I had in the pantry. I usually end up baking mine 30 minutes because I just don't think it is brown enough at 20.

Really good served warm with ice cream or cool whip!

Have a great weekend!

It is a family favorite around here. I always use yellow cake mix. I also use 2 cans of pie filling, and leave out the pineapple (canned pineapple doesn't agree with me)

Oh my goodness - the calories, but oh how wonderful it sounds. I think that as soon as I get an oven that works, I'm going to make this as the inaugural dish!!
