    This is an EXCELLENT and EASY dessert! I made one with apple pie filling and spice cake with pecans……it was awesome. Then topped it with warm caramel. Thank you Vickie for your recipes and I love how you demonstrate the assembly of each recipe. I also made the Cooker Chops…….SO good!

    • Thank you so much! I love your suggestion on the apple pie filling with spice cake mix. I’m going to make that today! This recipe is so easy and everyone loves it!

  2. I make this all the time. You can use lots of other canned fruits and we call it a dump cake . so good and easy … the office loves this cake when we have socials and bring something i get the request for this!

    • Another reader suggested Apple Pie Filling with Spice Cake Mix and I’m making that tomorrow. I also saw Caramel Apple Pie Filling at the store and I thought that would be good with Butter Brickle Cake Mix…You are right…the possibilities are endless!

  3. This is the best no fuss dessert! I’ve been making it since I was a little girl in the 50’s. I call it “Cherry Stuff” because I couldn’t remember what my gramma called it!
