This is to the person who was looking for recipes to use her cake mixes. I bought a great little cook book titled: "101 Things To Do With A Cake Mix" by Stephanie Ashcraft
I make Dump Cake with dry cake mix. Layer casserole dish with can of cherries then layer over it with can of pineapple. Open dry mix and pour evenly over top. Slice sticks of butter and place every inch on top of cake mix. Bake for 30 minutes than add shredded coconut and pecans. Cook til coconut is slightly brown. Mmmmm. It's kinda messy but I think that's why it's called Dump Cake.xoxo
I own this book and another one named 101 More things to do with a Cake Mix. I brought my copies at Barnes and Noble. But you can also request a copy from your city library. There are several others books on Cake Mixes. Cake Mix Classics by Geraldine Duncann, Lookie!Lookie! It's Gonna Be A Cookie by Jackie Gannaway and Cake Mix Cookies by Camilla V. Saulsbury. Also, I found lots of recipes on the internet by just by going to Cake Mix Cookies.
I love dump cake. Back in the 70's when my kids were little, I tried all kinds of variations. Did not find one that we didn't like. Some of the ones I remember were blueberry pie filling with white cake, spice cake with apple pie filling, and of course, anything goes with chocolate cake-LOL.

I love the cookbook "101 Things to Do With a Cake Mix" by Stephanie Ashcroft. She gives recipes for turning any cake mix into brownies or chewy squares, or moist bundt cakes and delicious cookies.
