Cherry Dump Casserole - It's Ridiculishes!

After the first bite of this delicious dessert, the little orphan's voice from Annie echoed in my mind, "oh my goodness, oh my goodness."  Look how ridiculously easy it is to make.  The only word to describe it would be Ridiculishes!  (Ridiculous + Delicious)

Cherry Dump Cake
1 (21 ounce) can cherry-pie filling
1 (18-1/4 ounce) box yellow cake mix
1 stick butter, sliced then cut the slices into quarters
1 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375 F. Dump cherries into the bottom of a 9-by-13-inch pan (lightly sprayed). Cover with the dry cake mix and press down with a spatula. Slice small sections of butter and place on top of cake mix. Sprinkle top with cinnamon, coconut, and chopped pecans.  Cover with foil and  bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for 10-15 more minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream (or whipped cream)
