I added almond extract into the cherry pie filling and sprinkled 1/2 cup brown sugar over the fruit. I followed the advice of Mommaward and mixed the melted butter into the cake mix. I only used 3/4 cup butter, sprinkled about 1/2 cup pecans over all, did not add coconut. It was delicious. Nice crunch on top, cobbler-ish in the bottom. I will try it with peach pie filling. Great recipe!



I also am from Texas and we call this "dump cake". I have altered it a bit for my tast. I put the cherry pie filling in the pan with the pineapple and mix together. Melt one stick of butter and mix in with the cake mix. Makes it crumbly. Then crumble over the filling. Pecans are optional. Bake until brown. Turns out perfect every time. Other pie fillings are good too or fresh peaches(great).



I submitted this recipe. There is a mistake on the coconut. My grandmother use to make this all the time and she used a can of angel flake coconut. This is also very good with strawberry pie filling!
