1 box of MOIST yellow cake mix
1/2 Cup butter or margarine, melted
1 can (8 oz) crushed Pineapple, UNdrained
1 can, (21 oz) Cherry Pie filling

Preheat oven to 350
(325 for dark or nonstick pan)
Mix cake mix and butter in large bowl until it's crumbly - set aside.
First Spread Cherry pie filling in ungreased 13 x 9 pan. Make sure it's spread evenly, {I'd hate for your piece to be the one without a Cherry ;o} Then spread the crushed pineapple on top of the cherries. Sprinkle the cake mixture evenly over the fruit covering the whole pan.
Bake 35 to 45 minutes - until deep golden brown.
Let Cool for 30 minutes to firm.
Cake can be served warm or much later when it's totally cooled.
It's really scrumptious when served with a little ice cream on the side. And it's so easy even my 9 yr. old Michelle can make it all by herself!! Enjoy ;o}
