“My Mom's dessert staple! This is a super-fast, super-easy recipe that makes for a fantastic dessert that isn't too rich and isn't too sweet. I usually use walnuts for the nuts and cherry pie filling, but I guess you could use another kind of nuts and filling if you wanted. :) You can use any kind/brand of cake mix, just as long as it's for white cake. 9 oz is the size of the Jiffy box, so if you're using another kind, just put in the whole box.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix pineapple with cherry pie filling in the bottom of 9 x 13 pan (I usually use glass so it doesn't stick).
  2. Sprinkle cake mix on top until completely covered (I recommend using your hands rather than just shaking the box to make sure there are no clumps).
  3. Drizzle the butter over the entire pan.
  4. Sprinkle the nuts evenly over the pan.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until golden brown and bubbly.
  6. Serve alone warm or cold or with ice cream.
