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.
Lightly grease an 8×8 pan. Pour cherries in pan. Sprinkle cake mix over cherries. Melt butter and drizzle evenly on top. Bake for 40-50 minutes at 350. Get scolded by husband. Enjoy!
