Super fast and easy, cake mix dessert when you are too busy to fuss over dessert too.

Serves 10-14

Fruit Options:
6 apples, peeled and sliced
6 pears, peeled and sliced
3 cups blueberries
Frozen cubed fruit
One 21-ounce can cherry pie filling
One 15-ounce can crushed pineapple
1 box white cake mix (18 ounces)
1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) margarine
Whipped cream, dairy or non-dairy for serving

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix any variety of fresh or canned fruit into a 9 x 13 baking dish. I like the combination of apples and pears, or the combination of apples and cherry pie filling, or fresh pears with canned crushed pineapple (semi-drained). But use whatever you like, fresh, frozen or canned (canned pie fillings have a lot of sugar so mix them with some fresh fruit)
Sprinkle the cake mix over the top of the fruit. Slice the margarine into tablespoons and distribute evenly over the surface of the cake mix.

Bake until the tops are brown and bubbly, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Serve with whipped cream
