Saturday Sweetness - Cherry Delight

This recipe is one that Mom uses when she needs a yummy dessert in a hurry. Pretty much all of the ingredients are usually on the pantry shelf. I'm planning on making this for the weekend to celebrate our moving (and the fact that I have a great, usuable kitchen!) I hope you will enjoy this quick treat as much as we do!

Cherry Delight
1 can cherry pie mix
1 sm can crushed pineapple, drained
1/2 box white or yellow cake mix
1 cup water
1/2 cup melted butter
1/4 cup chopped nuts (I usually end up using closer to 1/2 cup - I like it crunchy)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread cherry pie mix into a 9x13" pan. Layer the pineapple over the top of the cherry mix. Sprinkle the cake mix over the top of the fruit. Pour water over the entire pan and sprinkle the nuts on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

Mom notes that you can add whip cream or a scoop of ice cream on top for an extra jolt of yummy. Voila! A super easy, super fast-disappearing dessert treat! (Only one pan to clean up too - my kind of recipe Mom!!)

PS> I've made this with blueberry pie mix too, it's pretty tasty as well!


  1. Yum! Nice easy dessert . . . and easy clean up! Thanks!

  2. I have had this called "Dump Cake". Not nearly as romantic as "Cherry Delight"! I'll have to try it in this version!
