Quick & Easy Cherry Cobbler

Saturday after being gone for almost a whole week to the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, our oldest son arrived home safely.  As a welcome home meal - and also because the temperatures had dropped during the previous 24 hours - I decided to make stew, cornbread, and cherry cobbler.  The whole family was excited about him coming home, the cooler temps, and the food, of course :).

I found a quick new recipe that is basically "Dump Cake" without the pineapples and pecans.  Super simple and super tasty!

Interestingly, as I visited with my brother-in-law/minister yesterday after morning worship, he mentioned this very same dessert!  He had served it just the day before for the community meal he does each month!  So weird we had done the same thing - not knowing the other one did it.  Then someone who had eaten his dessert asked for the recipe.  I was planning to post it anyway, so it all worked out!


2 cans cherry pie filling
1 yellow cake mix (My bro-in-law used yellow and golden buttery.  Another recipe said white.  I think if you liked chocolate, you could use it, too.)
1 cup butter (2 sticks, real butter)

Spread cherry pie filling in bottom of 9 x 13 inch cake pan.  Sprinkle dry cake mix over pie filling.  Melt butter and pour over cake mix.  Bake for about 50 minutes or until golden on top.  Serve with whipped topping or ice cream, if desired.
