My husband loves to cook and is a wonderful cook. He will find difficult recipes and enjoys the challenge. On the other hand, I look for quick and easy things to make. This DUMP CAKE is one of my favorite desserts. One time I entered the recipe in a local grocery store contest, using their brands of products, and won this neat television!
1 large can crushed pinapple
1 can cherry pie filling
1 (2-layer size) yellow cake mix
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
2 sticks of margarine
Grease a 9 x 13 x 2 inch pan. Dump undrained crushed pineapple into pan and spread all over the bottom of the pan. Dump cherry pie filling and spread evenly over the top of the pineapple. Sprinkle dry cake mix on top evenly. Cut sticks of butter into 1/4 inch pats (squares) and place on top of dry cake mix. Sprinkle with nuts. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 1 hour.
My husband likes to use chocolate cake mix in place of the yellow cake mix. He calls it the "Black Forrest" version because it is cherries and chocolate. He also makes a "Spice Cake" version using spice cake mix and apple pie filling. My daughter likes to take out the cherry pie filling and put in blueberry pie filling. Just be aware that the yellow cake mix and blueberry filling gives the finished product a "green color", BUT it is really really good.
