    Why is the water optional? What happens if you use it? And what happens if you leave it out? Which do you do? In or Out? Thanks and I truly plan on trying this the next shopping trip I will get everything.... Thanks Bunches...Barb

    If your fruit has enough juice in it to dampen the cake mix, then you don't need the water, if it doesn't then you use the water to make the mix damp. But keep in mind that when the butter melts it will soak into the mix as well so you don't want to add too much water, it varies.
