  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 20 oz can crushed pineapple
  • 1 can cherry pie filling
  • 1/2 cup 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup coconut
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. No need to grease or spray, but feel free if you’d like to do this.
  • Empty the cans of pineapple (yes, even the juice) and cherry pie filling in the baking dish. Stir to combine the fruit.
  • Distribute dry cake mix evenly over fruit in the baking dish. Pour melted butter evenly over the dry cake mix (you can help this by using a rubber spatula to spread the melted butter). Top with coconut and sliced almonds.
  • Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes or until fruit begins to bubble up through the cake mix and the top is golden brown. Serve warm or chilled. Cream is nice poured on top.
