Saturday Share: Recipe, Christmas Cherry Dessert

If you like to serve dessert for holiday dinners, here's one that's a time saver because it's a dump cake and so easy to make.

Since it's also decadently rich and yummy, it's perfect for a holiday meal.

I call this dessert a pie-cake because it’s like a delicious cherry pie, but it's not really a pie.

I use Comstock brand of cherry pie filling. There are other varieties and maybe some regional products for you. Choose one you like.

Served warm from the oven for a holiday meal, it's perfect by itself, or served à la mode with a scoop of vanilla ice cream melting on top.

Your guests will love it. Serves 12-16.

  • 1 box of yellow cake mix
  • 1 20-ounce can of crushed pineapple in juice
  • 1 can of Cherry Pie Filling (I tried a new organic product. The cherries might be organic, but it's got so much "filler" in it that it's like paste in my opinion.)
  • 1 stick of butter, cut in slices

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease a 13x9x2 sheet cake pan or a pretty casserole dish.
  • Dump the undrained crushed pineapple into the pan and spread evenly over the bottom.
  • Spoon the pie filling over the pineapple and spread it as evenly as possible.
  • Sprinkle the box of dry cake mix over the layers and spread it out evenly.
  •  Place the pieces of butter around the top.
  • Bake for 48-53 minutes.
  • Serve warm or cooled.
