Friday Recipe: Slow Cooker Black Forest Cake

The title says it all: It's a dessert made in the slow cooker! This came in my email and anything in a crockpot means I'm totally there. And apparently it's supposed to look like a dark gooey mess. Which mine was. The problem was that I don't actually like pineapple. But everyone else did so I consider this attempt a success!

1/2 cup butter
1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple,
drained and juice reserved
1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling
1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake
1. Melt the butter in a small saucepan, and mix with reserved juice from the can of pineapple. Set the mixture aside.
2. Spread the crushed pineapple in a layer on the bottom of a slow cooker. Spoon the cherry pie filling in an even layer on top of the pineapple, and empty the dry cake mix into the slow cooker on top of the cherry filling. Stir the butter and pineapple juice mixture, and pour it over the dry cake mix.
3. Set the slow cooker to Low, and cook for 3 hours. Spoon the dessert into bowls, and let cool about 5 minutes to cool the hot pie filling before eating.
