A Quick Fix for Sweet Teeth

Let's say you are in a hurry and let's say you have to go to work and let's say you wanted to make a co-worker a cake for his birthday, this Dump Cake will meet all of the requirements, even if you forgot that you needed to make it, like----RIGHT NOW! Not intended for calorie counters. Serve warm, cool, cold and if you need more calories, serve with ice cream or cool whip. Now if you want something sweet without all of the calories, look at these adorable baby raccoons, who somehow got separated from their Mama.  We ended up letting our dear friend and neighbor, Cleo, take them to an animal rescue.  The one on the right has a little dribble of formula on his nose.

Dump Cake
1 (20 ounces) can crushed pineapple, undrained
1 (21 ounces) can prepared cherry pie filling
1 (18.25 ounces) box yellow cake mix
2 sticks unsalted butter, melted
½ cup chopped pecans
1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (325 for glass baking dish).
Butter a 9 by 13-inch baking pan.
Dump undrained pineapple into baking dish, spread 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.
Pour butter evenly over cake mix.
Sprinkle nuts and coconut, if using them.
Bake for one hour.

  1. So there I lay in bed trying to sleep but with this aroma slowly crawling thru the barn to my bed. A sweet way to awake and begin the day.
