This is one of the easiest recipes you will ever make. There is no mixing, beating or stirring and very little measuring! It's so easy it makes a perfect recipe to get the children involved in. They can do this one, pretty much by themselves, with the exception of taking it in and out of the oven. Some call this a "Dump Cake", but my family advised me to call it something a little more appetizing for you all! The word "dump" has so many connotations in our language and none of them are really appetizing! Therefore, I have made it one of my easy peasy recipes! This is a cake that has a cobbler like consistency and it's absolutely delicious with a scoop of ice cream on it! Here is what you will need for this:
1 (20 oz.) can of crushed pineapple, do not drain
1 (21 oz.) can of cherry pie filling (can use whatever other flavor you like also)
1 (18.5 oz.) box yellow cake mix
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup butter (2 sticks) cut in thin slices, about 12 pats each stick
1 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans)
Preheat oven to 350.
Spray a 9"x13" baking pan with nonstick spray.
Pour the crushed pineapple in the bottom. Do not drain it.
Spoon the pie filling evenly over the pineapple.
Sprinkle the cake mix evenly over the pie filling.
Sprinkle with the cinnamon.
Cover the cake mix with the pats of butter.
Sprinkle with the chopped nuts.
Place in the oven and bake for 1 hour.
This is best served warm with ice cream!
