I mixed the cherry pie filling together with the pitted sweet cherries (yes, I kept the's like when you make a regular dump cake with the cherry pie filling and whole can of crushed pineapple with juice). I also used chopped pecans instead of walnuts. My dump cake was done in just over 30 minutes. I served this slightly warm with dollops of Cool-Whip. My family adored this dessert. Very good. NOTE: If you cut your butter into very thin slices and layer them over the dry cake mix/nut layer, you should have enough to cover the whole dry layer and end up with a topping that looks like a crisp/cobbler. I don't always get the results I want if I melt the butter and drizzle it over.


Very Tasty! The trick to getting all the cake mix to bake is to cut very thin slices from a cold stick of utter and lay them as close together over top of the cake mix layer.


This cake is just awesome. Quick, easy and so GOOD! For those of you who were complaining about having dry cake mix after baking - you need to use more butter. I usually use a whole stick and it turns out terrific. I also substitute pecans for the walnuts.
