You can also spread the cherries over the baking dish with your spatula. Cherry is one of my favorite but if you want, you can subtitute it with other fruits or anything you like.
  3. Next, place the butter into the glass baking and put it into the microwave wait until the butter is completely melted, it’s gonna take about 60 seconds or more.

So you can do like I did or you can just slice the butter on the top of the cake.
  4. Once the butter is melted, remove it from microwave, wait for about few minutes until the butter is cooled. While you’re waiting, pour the yellow cake mix on the top of the cherries. Alternately add the melted butter on the top.
  5. Once your cake is sufficiently buttered, go ahead and put it into your oven that you have already set to 350 degrees F. And just let it bake for about 20 to 25 minutes or until the top of the cake becomes golden brown. Once you see the beautiful golden brown on the top of the cake you’ll also see there’re many bubble comes out from the cherries.
