I've cooked lentils before. Unfortunately, I treated them like black-eyed peas and kidney beans. The results were not promising. Also, I'm looking for some easy recipes for making chickpea cakes. In return, I offer this recipe for a cherry dump cake.
Preheat oven to 350
1 can crushed or chunk pineapple
1 can cherry pie filling
1/2 box yellow cake mix
In a cake pan, first dump the pineapple. Next dump in the cherry pie filling. Spread the cake mix evenly over. Place butter pats across the cake mix, making sure to cover the cake mix as fully as possible. Cook for about 45 minutes.
