I love this! We make it with only one big can of cherries and one cake mix. I'll have to try it your way. I like it both hot and cold.it's a holiday recipe only because we have it for Thanksgving and Christmas dessert, and pretty much no other time. Super simple, ultimately delicious cherry "cobbler":
3 cans tart red cherries in juice/water
2 yellow Jiffy cake mixes
1 stick margarine or butter.
dump cherries in 9x12 pyrex. check for pits.
sprinkle/dump jiffy mix evenly
cut thin pieces of butter/marg and lay out evenly across the top.
bake @ 350 about 45-60 minutes (depending on your oven and affinity for crunchy-burned edges)
eat hot or cold.
with or without ice cream or topping.
my favorite is cold with vanilla 'scream, but Dad likes it cold & plain.
the cake on top gets all lusciously buttery & crumbly crunchy, and the tart cherries are perfect with a bit of cold & sweet ice cream.
nom nom nom.
