Inexpensive Sweet

If you liked my recipe for Cherry Crunch Pie and/or Blueberry Buckle then you must keep reading b/c what's coming, is a perfect marriage of the two. And if you didn't read those....well, keep reading anyway, I promise it will be worth it. I shared w/ you one of my Christmas presents from Mr. Everyday was Gooseberry Patch's Dinners on a Dime and how it's the perfect resource for yummy, easy and most of all budget friendly meals for families like yours, and mine! Well, this time it provided me w/ a dessert that even Alex could make if need be, and I was able to make it directly from my pantry and fridge! I had all of the ingredients on hand and made it on a random Tuesday simply b/c I was finally in the mood for something sweet again after taking a break from desserts due to the, what seemed like, 100 pounds of cookies, fudge, candy, etc. I ingested during the holidays!!! The is described as a cake in the book, and I guess that's accurate, but to me it's even more like a cobbler. And as I mentioned above, it's a really great mix of two dishes we already love. If you are looking for something delicious to make for your sweetie for Valentines Day, but want to stay on budget, or maybe you're going to be working all day but want to come home and still put together a special meal including a dessert, this is it!! Not to mention....the color screams cupid!!!

3-Ingredient Cake from Dinners on a Dime (submitted by
1 can cherry pie filling
1 yellow cake mix
1 stick butter, diced

In a greased 9x13 baking pan, spread pie filling. Sprinkle cake mix over top. Dot w/ butter. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes until top is brown and butter melted. Serve w/ ice cream or whipped cream.
*NOTE* Mine actually took almost 45 minutes to bake. I would say start at 20 and check after that, adding time if needed.

I use a small can of crushed pineapple and a can of strawberry filling. Around here, it's known as dump cake and boy is it good!
