Pineapple Cherry Dump Cake

Here is a dessert recipe that Mady mostly made tonight with a little of my assistance. It's really easy since you just dump in all the ingredients for the most part. I got it out of a Toddler Busy Book I have.

It comes out kinda like a cobbler. We haven't eaten a bite yet as it just came out of the oven but it smells lovely.

1 (20 ounces) can crushed pineapple, undrained
1 (21 ounces) can prepared more fruit cherry pie filling
1 (18.25 ounces) box yellow cake mix
1.5 sticks of butter or margarine
1/4 cup chopped nuts (optional - we didn't do this)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (325 for glass baking dish). Have a 9 by 13-inch baking pan ready. Dump undrained pineapple into baking pan and spread it out evenly. Using a spoon, dump globs of cherry pie filling evenly on top of the pineapple. Sprinkle the cake mix evenly over the cherry and pineapple layers. Cut butter into slices with a butter knife and place slices evenly over cake mix. Sprinkle nuts on top if you're using them. Bake for 45 minutes - 1 hour.

Off to bath time while we wait for the cake to cool!
