1 can cherry pie filling 1/2 box yellow cake mix 1/2 cup chopped pecans 1 stick margarine
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Pour the cherry pie filling into a baking dish. Mix dry the cake mix, pecans, and margarine. Work the ingredients into a crumbly mixture.
Dump the mixture over the cherries, distributing evenly. Bake for 30 minutes or so. If the top doesn't brown lightly, you may wish to turn on the broiler for a minute or two to tint the top crust. Serve warm.
The Cherry Dump Cake was so easy & delicious. I want to experiment with different pie fillings & cake mixes. I would rate this 5 star recipe. I like to bake & this tasted like a dessert that took a lot of time, & it didn't. Very good!

So good! To serve it we just scoop it into a bowl with some french vanilla ice cream. YUM!
momfor2kids August 30, 2013 COMMENT: Question before I make this: What size baking dish did you use to make this in, 9x13, 8x8, 9x9, other???
CDKitchen Staff Reply: Other recipes similar to this use an 8x8 pan.

Had this at a friend's house and she gave me the recipe. Made it myself a few days later and have to tell you that it's to die for! I never would have tried it myself if I hadn't had someone else prepare it for me first. It seems too simplistic but it works. I'm going to also try it with other flavors of pie filling and maybe other cake mixes. Has anyone done something with chocolate cake mix before?

Easy to make, great eaten hot with custard.
The sweet pecans complement the tart cherries beautifully. Delicious!
It's ok to cheat a little by using convenience foods in your cooking. Refrigerated crescent roll dough comes in very handy in recipes like cheddar spinach appetizer squares, mini pepperoni rolls, or simple bear claws.
