      1. I’ve made this in the oven and followed the cake box direction for bakining but waited until the top was golden brown and bubbly filling. Some recipes say the oven bake time is 50 minutes.

  1. wondering if I double the recipe will it work and do I double the time? Maybe just two crock pots would work better….thoughts?

      1. I just made 2 cans of tart cherries into actual cherry pie filling by cooking them to simmer (10-15 min, med heat, covered sauce pan), separately mixing 1 cup sugar and 1/4 cup cornstarch, adding that to the cherries in the saucepan to simmer, turn to low, stir 2 minutes, and BOOM! Cherry pie filling.

  2. Cook top Stove says to make cherry filling use: 1 cup sugar, 3 T corn starch, 1 T lemon juice, and 4 cups pitted cherries. Simmer till thick.

    No stirring? I hope lol I have it in the crockpot now cooking and its on low for 4hours and still looks pretty soft on the top. Normal?

    1. Nope, no stirring. It will never firm up like cake, its more like a cobbler and it will remain looking soft on the top. The first time I made this I didn’t trust the results and I let it cook for like 8 hours because I didn’t think it was “done”. Only after I scooped it out did I realise that it was actually indeed done… and err.. well after 8 hours it was overdone.

    9×13 pan, 350 degrees, 30 minutes. Can top with nuts if desired. DO NOT try chocolate cake mix with cherry pie filling – wrong flavors, epic fail! White cake & Peach pie filling, Apple Pie filling & Spice Cake. Blueberry would work with yellow cake mix. Can make 2 8×8, just split cake mix & butter . Can do Jiffy cake mix = half size, 1 can pie filling. DO NOT double contents in 9×13 pan, will not work. Use 2nd pan. Great warm or cold for potlucks & picnics, impervious to temps & “looking perfect” like icing getting bumped or runny. I have not made in slow cooker, but have made this dump cake for decades. Top with ice cream! I want to eat the entire thing, just looking at your picture. MUST make for this weekend!

  5. I made this and it turned out to be one big clump. It was horrible. We had to add ice cream to be able to eat it and even then it was barely eatable. Not sure what went wrong.

  6. This recipe is a favorite, but why use a slow cooker when it can be made so quickly?
    One yellow Jiffy cake mix, one can of cherry pie filling (or other favorite filling), one stick of melted unsalted butter. Spray 8″ square pan, spread filling on bottom, dump dry cake mix on top and spread evenly, pour melted butter on top. Bake 350 degrees for one hour. Delish! You can sprinkle pecans over pie filling if you like nuts.

  7. I would prefer to use a french vanilla cake mix in place of the apple crock pot recipe and also the cherry crock pot recipe. I say that only because I don’t like spice cake and I don’t like the color of yellow cake. I assume it will taste just as delicious. What great recipes though when you have company. Dessert doesn’t have to be another course you have to struggle with.
