Love the title of this recipe. I was going to post this and saw it was already here. The version I have adds 2 cans of chopped pears with juice. Add some paper towels before you put the lid on the slow cooker, and the moisture that builds up won't drip down on the cake as it cooks. You can also get a "Bread 'n Cake Bake Pan" from Rival Crock Pot that is a pan with a vented lid that fits in the crockpot... in case you are a kitchen gadget freak like I am. Gotta love the special pans.
My Husband and I enjoyed this recipe. I put it in the crock pot and we had lunch and it was there warm waiting for ice cream. It browned and was gooey and delicious ! I will definitely be making again and trying different pie fillings. Thank you for the recipe.
I agree this turned out great, everyone loved it! I did make the mistake of grabbing 2 cans of un-pitted cherries, don't know what I was thinking. Next time I'll go for the pitted ones! I did take the advice of another reviewer (Lelandra) and put some paper towels on top to catch the condensation, that worked really well, it didn't turn out soggy......thanks :)
I loved it, DH gave it a 4. He can kiss my gumbo. Made for P-A-R-T-Y tag.
I first made this for my daughter and some of her friends who visited when she was home from college. They loved it and scraped the crockpot clean! I used canned no sugar added cherries instead of pie filling and found it to still be very sweet, especially with vanilla ice cream on top! I've made it with and without the walnuts and it was very good both ways. This is a very easy "dump" dessert which I'm now expected to make at every gathering!
We had this tonight for dinner-rave reviews. I used a 20 oz (they didn't have 21 oz) no sugar added cherries. It was more than sweet enough if others want to try that route.
This is something my mom made a lot when we were kids, only she never used a crockpot or nuts. I still make this, but here's how I do it: grease 9x9 pan, dump in filling, sprinkle cake mix on top, put little bits of butter a couple inches apart all over the cake and pour about 1/2 C water over everything and bake in 350 oven until golden on top, about thirty minutes. I just might have to try the crockpot for this one!
Yummy! This was good. Thanks for sharing such a simple recipe!
This was unbelievably good. So rich and so sweet that it absolutely HAS to be served with vanilla ice cream. What a treat!!!
Yummy! I love anything with cherry filling. I used butter. It's sweet but delicious. I used the walnuts. I cooked it 3 hours. Thanks Sharon :) Made for Zaar Star Game
