this is a WONDERFUL and easy dessert! Definitely more like a cobbler, so it needs to be served with vanilla ice cream! If you sprinkle the coconut and nuts under the cake mix (as one other reviewer suggested), it eliminates the burning and elminates the need of having to remember to add the coconut towards the end of baking. A good variation on this is to use apple pie filling and a spice cake mix!!!

Didn't melt the butter, used the butter pats on top like suggested by others but still had dry spots where the cake mix didn't get wet. May try again and will mix the melted butter with the cake mix. It was OK for me but hubby LOVED it.

Delicious & easy! I used only 1/2 cup of melted butter & 1/2 cup of the drained pineapple juice so it wouldn't have so much fat from the butter. I used light cherry pie filling too. Made mine with the coconut & pecans under the cake layer so they wouldn't burn (thanks to the reviewer that added that line a while ago!). Turned out quite tasty & served warm from the oven with vanilla fat-free frozen yogurt. Reheated well too! Yum!

Great recipe! Also made it with blueberry pie filling in place of the cherries and strawberry pie filling minus the pineapple. So easy and yummy. I also make it the night before so it has time to set.

I tripled the recipe and brought it to work for a co-worker's birthday. We served it topped with vanilla ice cream. It was a big success, and I've even had a request for the recipe (I would have probably had more, except that 99% of my co-workers are men - they like to eat goodies, not make them!).

I love dump cake--but I use a can of tart pie cherries instead of the cherry pie filling. It gets rid of that artificial pre-made pie-filling taste, and cuts down on the sweetness. It's still *plenty* sweet, don't worry.

I substituted devil's food cake mix for the yellow and distributed the melted butter evenly with a spatula. I omitted nuts and coconut. The top came out like brownies. The dessert was delicious with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream.

I had this at a barbeque this summer and loved it! I use tart cherry filling instead of pie filling (so much better) and I used PINEAPPLE cake mix instead of yellow! It gives it more flavor!!! Used pecans instead of walnuts and doubled the nuts. Awesome!!!!!
