- 2 cans (21 oz each) cherry pie filling
- 1 box devil's food cake mix
- ¾ cup butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 350 F. Coat a 9 x 13 baking dish with a layer of non-stick cooking spray.
- Add both cans of cherry pie filling to the baking dish.
- Top with a layer of devil's food cake mix.
- Pour melted butter over the top of the cake mix, trying to cover as much of the cake mix as possible. (It won't cover it all - it is ok!)
