The Cake

There's a cake called dump cake where you do just that - dump the ingredents into the pan and bake. It's quite good, but it has a bunch of butter, so it's not exactly low calorie. I was looking for a way to lighten a cake that didn't have frosting, so here's what I did:

1 yellow cake mix (make as the box says)
1 can of cherry pie filling - spoon into cake batter after it's in the pan before baking. Swirl a bit with a knife.

Bake two minutes longer than the box says to.

It's sublime. No need for frosting. I'll be experimenting to see if I can cut an egg or add more filling and cut two eggs (box called for 3) or something like that.
