Hubby loves cake with cherry, pineapple, nuts
Karen, yes indeed! This always has been one of my favorites, too! 1 21-ounce can of cherry
pie filling 1packageofyellowcake
mix (2-layer size) 1 3-ounce can/package of pecans (1 cup), chopped
1/2 stick of butter or margarine
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9-by-13inch baking pan. Spread the pineapple with its syrup evenly in the pan. Spoon the cherry pie filling evenly over the pineapple. Sprinkle the dry cake mix evenly over the mixture, then the chopped nuts over all. Slice the chilled butter or margarine into thin slices, then place evenly over the other ingredients. Bake for 50 minutes, or until golden. Serve warm. Makes 12 servings.
Remember to always place your cake pan in the center of the rack, and in the middle of the oven, for an evenly baked cake.

a deep fryer?
Nancy, first you need to fry foods at a very high temperature in order to keep oil from saturating the food and making it greasy.
For the best results, experts in the culinary field suggest peanut oil. Peanut oil has a high smoke point, which means you should deepfryatabout350-375 degrees. The exception to this is, of course, if someone has an allergy to nuts of any kind. Other recomm endedoilsare coconut oil, avocado oil and palm oil. Since so many vegetable oils are ultraprocessed foods, it’s best to avoid them for deep frying. These include corn oil, canola oil, grapeseed oil, sunflower oil, etc.
