Recipe Information

Recipe Created By: Penny Tennant


1/2 16 oz pkg frozen cherries
1 can pineapple tidbits
2 tsp tapioca starch
1 box Kosher for Passover yellow cake mix
1 stick margarine, melted
1/4 cup sliced almonds (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 °F.

In a greased 8x8" glass pan, mix cherries, pineapple and starch. Microwave for two minutes, and then sprinkle cake mix over fruit. Pour melted margarine over that, and then top with almonds if using.

Bake for 40 minutes or until done.


This was kind of mushy for "cake," but it's nice and sweet and gooey.

This recipe is suitable for Passover. Check that the ingredients are okay according to your level of observance.


The Kosher for Passover cake mix is about half the size of a regular cake mix.

To avoid tree nuts, omit almonds.

Butter and Margarine: Butter is a dairy product made from cow’s milk. Margarine typically contains milk or soy, but there are milk-free and soy-free versions available.
Corn Substitutions: Corn is a common ingredient in products. Starch, modified food starch, dextrin and maltodextrin can be from corn. Consult with your physician to find out which corn derivatives you need to avoid. Many corn-free options are available in the US. Find out more about corn substitutions.
