Dump Cake

Oh so easy... oh so delicious. This was a childhood staple. This cake or cobbler or whatever you want to call it has such a funny name that does not do it justice. It means that all you have to do is dump everything in a cake pan, and voila, you're done!

So here are your ingredients:
*2 cans cherry pie filling
*1 can crushed pineapple in juice (add juice too)
*1 box yellow cake mix
*1 stick of butter

*Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
*Melt the butter.
*While the butter is melting, pour all of the cherries and pineapple into a cake pan. Mix the fruit together so each is evenly distributed.
*Then pour the cake mix onto the fruit. Make sure it is in all of the corners and the sides. And don't break up the clumps; those are the most delicious parts when it is cooked!
*Dump the butter on top.
*Then bake it around 45 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the sides are bubbly.

*This has to be eaten warm, and it is delicious with vanilla bean ice cream.

This makes a ton for two people, so I usually try to half it. One of the teachers at my school had a baby, so I bought the disposable aluminum square cake pans. I put one can of cherries in each, and I just halved everything else. So, I had some for me and some to share. It's just too good not to share.
