Cooktop Cove: Watch how to make cherry 'dump' cake in a slow cooker
By Cate Misczuk
Boxed cake just got a whole lot yummier. And don't let the slow cooker fool you - this recipe is quick and simple. Prep time takes just a few minutes, and then after two hours of baking, this pie-cake-mashup is ready to be devoured. This is the perfect recipe for a last-minute dinner party, or for serving up at the holidays. 
Don't be afraid to get creative either - you can try this recipe with strawberries, blueberries - or whatever fruit you love. We also suggest pairing it with vanilla ice cream or some fresh whipped cream to finish it off.

1 box yellow cake mix
1/2 cup melted butter
2 cans of cherry pie filling
cooking spray
Directions
1. Mix butter, cake mix together - it'll look pretty clumpy.
2. Spray the slow cooker with cooking spray, and pour the pie filling in, and spread the cake mix right on top. You can also just dump in the filling, then pour over cake mix and melted butter without mixing in a separate bowl. 
3. Crank it up high for 2 hours.
4. Serve with vanilla ice cream right on top, or a dollop of fresh whipped cream. 
You can make your own whipped cream by whisking heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla into an ice cold mixing bowl on medium for about a minute. Super easy, and absolutely delicious to have your own fresh cream.
