This is the easiest cake know to man, but the results are FABULOUS! It’s technically called a Dump Cake, because you just “dump” all the ingredients in, but I am renaming it to a TOSS Cake...sounds nicer! If you're in a bind and need a quick yummy treat, look no further! This is the cake for you!
I have substituted the cherry pie filling for strawberry filling and apple filling as well and have also used different cake mixes too- there are so many yummy combinations that you can experiment with!
1 package of yellow cake mix (do not combine ingredients on box, you just need the DRY mix)
½ cup of butter
1 (21 ounce) can of cherry pie filling
1 (15 ounce) can of crushed pineapple
8 ounces of chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.
Toss cherry pie filling into dish and spread evenly.
Add crushed pineapple on top.
Sprinkle dry cake mix over cherries and pineapples, Do NOT stir (you will be tempted, but don't...will look messy, but remember, this is a Toss Cake).
Sprinkle your nut of choice over top. Cut butter and spread evenly over the cake. Bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with vanilla bean ice cream and coffee (now, we’re talkin’) J
