A Super Dessert for the Super Bowl

Here is a super quick recipe for a yummy dessert for your Super Bowl party (or for anything really). It takes less than 5 minutes to put together, has only 4 ingredients, and needs no measuring. 

Granny Annie's Cherry Stuff 
(make up a fancier name if you want but "Cherry Stuff" works for me)

1 large can (15 oz?) Crushed pineapple
1 can Cherry pie filling
1 box Yellow cake mix
1 stick of Butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350* F
Spray a 13 x 9 baking dish with Pam or similar vegetable cooking oil spray

Spread crushed pineapple evenly in bottom of pan
Spread cherry pie filling evenly on top of the pineapple
Pour cake mix evenly over fruit, leave lumpy, DO NOT smooth it out
Drizzle melted butter over the cake mix. 

Bake at 350*F for 30 minutes.
Let cool for at least 10 minutes

Can be served warm or cool. Goes great with ice cream.


  1. My ex's mom used to make this, too. But she called it a "Dump Cake" since you just dump the ingredients into the baking dish and bake it. She also sprinkled nuts on top, pecans I think.

    It's super sweet and tasty!

  2. Mmmm, I like the idea of nuts on top. I had heard the term 'dump cake' before but wasn't sure what that meant. Now I get it. Thanks!
