1 (26-ounce) can cherry pie filling

2 (15-ounce) cans diced pears in syrup

1 teaspoon almond extract

1 (18.25-ounce) box yellow cake mix

1 stick butter, cut into small pieces

1 (1.19-ounce) packet maple and brown sugar instant oatmeal

1/4 cup sliced almonds

Whipped topping, for serving


  1. Spray a 5-quart slow cooker with butter-flavored cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine pie filling, pears, and almond extract. Pour into prepared slow cooker. Sprinkle cake mix over fruit mixture. Dot with butter. In a small bowl, combine oatmeal packet and almonds. Sprinkle over cake mixture.
  3. Place 8 paper towels over slow cooker bowl and secure with lid. (This helps to trap steam.) Cook on LOW setting for 4 to 6 hours. Do not lift lid to check cake for the first 3 hours.
