  • 9x13-inch baking pan
  • rubber scraper


  • 20 oz can crushed pineapple
  • 21 oz can cherry pie filling
  • 1 yellow cake box mix
  • 12 tablespoons butter cut into pat (sliced into 24 pieces)


  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Whipped cream



  • Move the oven rack to the middle position. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease a 9x13 baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.


  • Spread the crushed pineapple and juices into the bottom of the prepared baking pan.
  • Spread the cherry pie filling on top of the crushed pineapple layer.
  • Sprinkle the dry cake mix evenly across the top of the cherry pie filling.
  • Place the 24 pieces of butter on top of the dry cake mix.
  • Bake for 45-55 minutes, check the cake halfway through baking, if there are flour pockets, then use a fork to mix them into the cake. You’ll know when the cake is done, because it will be bubbly and the top cake layer will be slightly golden brown.
  • Allow the cake to cool slightly. Then serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream (both optional).


Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
