I want the recipe!

Posted Saturday, October 25, 2008, at 10:08 AM

My husband and I attended the recent Chamber of Commerce Coffee at the Times-Gazette office. It wasn't a coffee. It was a feast. While we were there someone told Jim that the T-G always had the best food. I've never been to another coffee here in town, but that one would be hard to beat.

I had already eaten some of the goodies at the T-G office when I noticed a dish on the table with cherries in it. I love cherries. I love cherry pie, cherry cobbler, cherry Cokes, cherry pie filling, maraschino cherries in the little jars, cherries right off the trees, and cherries in the little baskets straight from the store. This was not a pie. I don't know what it was, but it was delicious. I think it was cherry pie filling with a topping that tasted like it contained real butter. It was wonderful! I want the recipe for that cherry dish. If you made it, please let me have the recipe. You can add it to this blog or send it by e-mail. You are a wonderful cook. If someone knows who made it, please ask that person to send it to me.

It is called dump cake.

This is not for the diabetic.

1 box of yellow cake mix

2 sticks of butter

1 can of crushed pineapple

1 can of cherry pie filling

You can use two of each if you wish, but times are tough.

Pour the pineapple into a 9x12 casserole pan or glass dish, then the cherry pie filling, then the cake mix. Cut the butter sticks at about 1/2 in thickness and place on top of the cake mix about 2 inches apart, You probably won't use all of the butter but that is ok.

Bake at 400 for until golden brown or until the top is good looking.

I hope this is the recipe you were referring to, if not? It is still good:)

Evil Monkey, if you made it for the Times-Gazette coffee, then this is it. I didn't remember that it had pineapple in it, but I love pineapple too. Thanks a lot.

My family has made it.

(I think we may have gotten the recipe from your mother,Evil Monkey.)

We haven't enjoyed it since we had to watch our sugars and lipids and such but it is one of the richest and easiest recipes out there.

Maybe,one of those professional kitchens that tweaks recipes could create a "diet" version that would be just as delicious.

Even the original cake is worth it because a tiny serving satisfies as much as a huge slice of some other desserts.
