Brad's Choice for Refreshments

Several years ago the young men made dinner for their moms and Brad learned that this is a super, simple, yummy dessert. It's definitely not low-calorie, but he decided to make for family night refreshments today anyway. I guess he's not worried about counting calories! Dump Cake

1 (20 ounces) can crushed pineapple, undrained
1 (21 ounces) can cherry pie filling
1 (18.25 ounces) box yellow cake mix
2 sticks of butter or margarine, each cut into 12 slices
1/4 cup chopped nuts (your choice - optional)
Preheat oven to 350°. Dump pineapple into a 9x13" baking dish and spread it out evenly. Using a spoon, dump globs of cherry pie filling evenly on top of the pineapple. Sprinkle the dry 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 one hour. To serve, scoop dessert out with a large spoon like a cobbler, and dump it on a nice plate. A scoop of vanilla ice cream is delicious with dump cake. Serve warm or cold.

Yield: about 10 to 12 servings
