Cherry Dabble Cake

This three ingredient dessert is so easy and quick to throw together. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream on top and you’ll want to eat the whole thing at once and then lick the pan — or maybe that’s just my husband, Christian.

As mentioned in my previous post, my Hot Buttered Pretzels were deemed by Christian, the best thing you ever made me” until I threw together this lil dabble cake. It was a typical scene, I ran to the store to pick up something I needed to make dinner when I spied Jiffy cake mix in an aisle. It sparked the memory of my mother making a blueberry/pineapple version of this and how delicious and easy it was. So I scooped up the Jiffy along with cherry pie filling (Christian’s fave) and popped it in the oven while we ate dinner. When I served it up to him, instead of saying thank-you” he said he felt betrayed and bewildered” and that I had been holding out on him”. Um, okay — between the from scratch” cookies, pies, cakes and other various desserts that I made him over the years, I’m a jerk because I hadn’t yet made him this masterpiece… this three ingredient masterpiece. Bad Suzy.
