  • I've made this delightful cake. I've made copies for friends. Everyone has the same comment, 2 thumbs up. So easy

  • This was sinfully rich! My husband really enjoyed it. I made it with the apple pie filling too. Great recipe. Fast and easy. Easy on the budget too!

  • This is awsome recipe. Make it in dutch oven every time we go camping. cook it right on hot coals. for variety, try yellow cake mix with fruit cocktail (yummy) or chocolate cake mix with cherry pie filling (great) The possibilities are endless.

  • Do you need to use frosting or cool whip with this cake- or eat it by itself????

  • You don't use the egg and oil, only the ingredients listed. I use apple pie filling and cinnamon and of course the walnuts instead of the cherry and blueberries. True the calories are outrageous but it tastes so good!

  • Oops!! Just realized "Patriotic", Red, White & Blue cake. I stand corrected! Later, try the pineapple.....anyway!

  • I've always used canned pineapple rather than blueberries for this recipe....and yellow cake mix. May try the blueberries....but the pineapple sure was delicious. Right on! Use only dry cake mix, the butter and juices will combine to taste great. I also used a bundt pan rather than a 9x12". Great cake and so easy!!

  • Great question! (must be the last name, great minds and all!) I did not submit this recipe, but can tell you that USUALLY, and I stress USUALLY, when a recipe calls for a cake mix, and does not list the ingredients that appear on the mix box, (eggs, oil and water) they are NOT used in the recipe - just the dry box mix is. From past experience, the mix will 'mix' with the melted butter to give a crumble type topping, and not a true cake layer, over the cherries and blueberries. Hope that help

  • This may seem silly, but do I need to follow the ingredients on the cake box or completely omit the oil, eggs, etc and just use the butter?

  • Watch out for this one. If the number of servings is correct looks like at least 750 calories per serving. 400 in butter alone.
