serves about 12-16
1 can crushed pineapple, drained
1 can cherry pie filling
1 box yellow cake mix (I found Duncan Hein's to be ok--check ingredients!)
1/2 cup vegan margarine
In a well-greased pan, add can of crushed pineapple and smooth out. Spoon cherry pie filling evenly in a layer over pineapple. Add cake mix on top of cherry layer and smooth out. Dot top of cake mix with slivers of vegan margarine. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes. It may look uncooked on the top in places, but that's OK with this cake!
This dish travels well and is so dang tasty. You can use other fruit pie filling instead of cherry--blueberry, blackberry, etc. (Oooo, ideas!). Some recipes also add nuts to the top with the butter, but I chose to leave them out here. You could probably even mix in some vanilla between layers for extra flavor.
