84oz Canned Cherry Pie Filling
Box Yellow Cake Mix
1 stick Butter
1 cup Pecans, chopped


  1. Dump the cherry pie filling in a glass or metal pan (9 X 12 cake pan size). Add dry cake mix on top by sprinkling it over the cherry pie filling. (it’s a judgement thing, I use 2/3’s to 3/4’s of the cake mix)
  2. Cut butter into patties and place around over the top of cake mix. (again it’s a judgement thing, I use about 3/4 stick of butter, and place it about a 1/2″ to 1″ apart!)
  3. Sprinkle the pecans on top! Bake at 375ºF for 45 minutes.

Chef’s Notes:

I baked it an hour for the Rally, and it burned a little on top…so I’m suggesting 45 minutes. For a smaller amount, I use one can of cherry pie filling, a little over half of a “Jiffy Yellow Cake Mix”, and butter to cover the top…and sprinkle on pecans as desired!
