Very easy and delish! Served warm with vanilla ice cream! Just the best!

Delicious! I did use a regular 20 oz. can of crushed pineapple instead of pie filling, and I added some chopped marachino cherries. It was the perfect combination of crunch or dump cake and pineapple upside down cake. The family LOVED it! I will absolutely make it again! Thanks for posting!
