Alabama Mud Cake

1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple, with juice
1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling
1 (18.25 ounce) package devil’s food cake mix
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup mint chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter, sliced

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan.

Pour pineapple with juice into prepared pan, spreading evenly to make the first layer. Spread cherry pie filling over the pineapple layer, then spread the cake mix over the cherry pie filling. Sprinkle the cake mix layer with pecans and mint chocolate chips, then distribute the sliced butter evenly over the top.

Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.

Do you put dry cake mix over top or make it up?

No, the cake mix is put on top dry and I’ll put a stick of butter on top of the cake mix layer. Usually if some of the cake mix is still dry at the end of the cooking time I’ll just put a pat of butter over those areas and cook another 5 minutes.
