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

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.

Made this for the first time and it came out perfect. Took to a pary and all loved it! I made only a few changes recommended by other reviewers....I used a 9x13 pan, layered the cherries, then pineapple (do not drain), then I added 1 cup of shredded coconut next followed by 1 cup of chopped pecans and lastly the box of yellow cake mix....Don't stir it all up....just leave in layers...then I used 2 sticks of butter...one I melted and poured over the cake mix and the other stick I sliced and layed in the spots where the melted butter didn't reach...this made it cook perfectly without any gaps of uncooked dried cake mix leftover as I have had in the past. Turned out absolutley perfect!!
