Cooking with my daughter

So my 5 year old was begging me to bake something. How can I really refuse? So I decided on a recipe with only a few ingredients and something that she could basically do herself with supervision of course. So I decided on Dump Cake, a recipe I got ages ago from a friend and is always great for a quick dessert, especially warmed over vanilla ice cream. I goggled it, just for fun, and found it everywhere with unlimited variations. Here is the recipe we used
1 can cherry pie filling
1 can crushed pineapple
1 box white cake mix (used vanilla)
1 stick of butter
dump cans of fruit (I found out you can use just about any fruit and also 1 cup of applesauce) in bottom of a 9x13 pan now dump on cake mix and finally melt butter and drizzle on cake- no mixing put in 350 degree oven for approx 1 hour and presto, yummy cake
