This is so very easy, and good for that really quick something sweet, when you don't have a whole lot of time. We enjoyed it very much. One we will make often with different cake mixes, and pie filling. Thanks!

Made this at the last minute for a meeting that I attended this evening, & it went over big! I used a chocolate fudge cake mix & cherry pie filling, & IT WAS SWEET! Got to admit that I thought it was going to be really, really runny on the bottom, but it was great! Many thanks for the post!
