Favorite Dessert of 2009...

I've seen variations of this recipe a dozen times, but I've never loved it more than having it at our church for potlucks. Tina S., who is a friend of mine, always makes this and it is wonderful! It's not like the normal dump cakes out there. I am a crust-lover and this one is the best! I'm not sure if this is her exact ingredients, but it sure tastes like it. She kindly filled me in on her technique though, so I thought I'd share! Thanks Tina <3

Cherry Dump Cake

2 cans cherry pie filling
1 package yellow cake mix
1 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
In the prepared dish, layer the cherry pie filling and then sprinkle the dry cake mix over the top, covering evenly. Pour the melted butter over the cake mix, and pat down with a spatula until the all the cake mix is covered. Bake 45 to 50 minutes in the preheated oven, until browned and bubbly.

* Store in the fridge. We love to eat this cold the next day - the crust stays good and crunchy!

Ah yes, this is a favorite at our church pot lucks too! Your crust looks so crisp and golden, the best I've seen, I think. Thanks for sharing this oldie-but-goodie!
