  • Line a 6 quart crock pot with parchment paper.
  • Spread the pie filling on the bottom of the parchment lined crock pot bottom.
  • Mix the cake mix following packaging directions.
  • Spread 1 ¾ of the cake batter over the cherry pie filling.
  • Add a few drops of blue food coloring to the remaining cake batter in the bowl beating it in well.
  • Spread the blue colored cake batter over the uncolored cake batter layer in the crock pot.
  • Stretch a double layer of paper towels over the top of the crock pot. Place the lid on and cook for 2 hours on high.

Recipe Expert Tips

  • Using a different size slow cooker will not yield the same results. A 6 quart slow cooker was used for this recipe and the cooking time is for that specific size slow cooker. A large slow cooker will cook in a shorter amount of time. I would not suggest using a smaller size slow cooker with this recipe as it might not cook completely in the center while the outside edges may over cook.
