Pineapple, Cherry, Blueberry Dump Cake

Ok, tonight we are having a yummy dessert. When I lived in West Virginia a friend of mine would make dump cake. It took me a few tries to get the recipe to where my family would eat it. Here is my version of Dump Cake.

1 cake mix (any flavor)
1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1/2 cup rolled quick oats
1 stick of butter/margarine
1 1/2 cup fresh/frozen fruit (blueberries, strawberries)
1 can crushed pineapple
1 can cherry pie filling (any flavor pie filling will work)

Preheat oven to 350F. in a 13X9X2 pan dump the can of crushed pineapple and cherry pie filling in and mix. Then place evenly on top the fresh/frozen fruit.

Then open the cake mix, and sprinkle the entire DRY cake mix on top of the fruit mixture in the pan. Then lightly mix the cake mix into the fruit mixture, leaving a layer of dry cake mix on top.

Then sprinkle the coconut and oats on top. cut the butter into small pieces, and place in a single layer on top of the dry mixture.

Bake for 30 min. or until golden brown and bubbly.

This turns out to be like a cross between a fruit crisp and a fruit cobbler. It is so yummy. The last two times I've made this there have been no leftovers. Usually doesn't last more than two days in my house. I have used apple pie filling with frozen blueberries, and cherry pie filling with blueberries and strawberries sliced. Both were very tasty and so easy to make, no added oil, or eggs or water needed.
