Delish 4 Step Cherry Cake

It’s me again with some real food for thought!

Last Wednesday was National Cherry Pie Day and, in honor of such a special holiday, I wanted to share an equally special recipe with you! Truth be told I’m a huge dessert enthusiast and a lover of baking in general, and pies happen to be one of my favorite things to create in the kitchen. But as anyone who’s ever baked a pie can tell you, creating a moist filling and a perfectly golden brown lattice crust top is an art that can really take time … more time (or patience) than I have when my belly starts to rumble!

That’s why I’m here to share with you what is arguably the easiest, quickest and most insanely delicious alternative to a traditional cherry pie: Cherry Dump Cake!  Deceive you not, this easier than pie recipe (see what I did there?) is made with a mere 4 ingredients and requires only that you know how to, you guessed it, dump everything in one pan! So grab your sweet tooth and enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 Can Crushed Pineapple
1 Can Cherry Pie Filling
1 Box Funfetti Cake Mix (you can use regular yellow or vanilla mix but I think this looks so cute and tastes the best!)
1 ½ Sticks Butter or Margarine

•    First dump out the pineapple in a 9″x13″ pan and spread it out evenly.
•    Then, drop spoonfuls of your cherry pie filling atop the pineapple.
•    Next, sprinkle the dried cake mix on top of the cherries, covering them completely.
•    And finally, cut the butter into individual, 1/4 thick squares and lay on top of the mix.

Pop the pan into a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 45-50 minutes until it’s golden brown! Dish a spoonful into a bowl and enjoy while it’s warm! Of course, if you prefer your desserts a la mode, you can add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to the top, too.

Happy (belated) National Cherry Pie Day, ladies!
