1 (21 ounce) can
cherry pie filling
1 (15 ounce) can

yellow cake mix
A couple of tips to make this cake even better:
1. Use a 9/13 pan.
2. Melt the butter before pouring it on top of the dry cake mix.
3. During the last 10 minutes of baking, sprinkle chopped walnuts and shredded coconut on top.
This cake is out of this world!
This is not a cake at all. It is more like a cobbler. Shouldn't even be in the cake catagory
can use 13x9" pan
? do you drain the pineapple?
The proportions of the wet to dry ingredients in this recipe are the most perfect of all the 'dump cake' recipes I found on this site. I had no dry cake mix left on top. I had just a couple of tbsp. shy of the 1 cup butter. I cut the slices of butter into pats and placed them over the entire cake trying not to leave too many gaps. It worked perfectly. I only had about 1/3 cup coconut which was fine since so many reviews of dump cakes on this site state that there was too much dry ingredients and not enough wet. This was perfect. I whipped up some cream to put on top and my coworkers loved this cobbler-like dessert. I was leary of using a bundt pan so I put it in a 9x13 sprayed with pam and it worked fine.
Easy and delicious! Perfect for summer cookouts or potlucks.
BTW, no need to drain the pineapples.
This is really great and so easy to make.I used a 9 by 13 inch pan instead of a bundt pan and I topped it off with pecans and coconut. It turned out wonderful. I can't decide if I like it better warm or cold.
I love making this. It is so easy and tastes so good. I have made this several times and have never had a problem.
Ive made this for 20 YEARS!! No changes needed absolutely wonderful!
