Split Decision Double Dessert
That’s why I came up with Split Decision. It has something for everyone in our family. It’s based on a simple recipe that’s been around almost my entire 45 years of housekeeping, but it was desperation, frustration, and a desire to make everyone happy that led to this variation of an old favorite.

I kept going back for another bite of this over and over and over. I just loved the nuts on the apple side and the softness and flavor of the cherries on the cherry side. The white cake brings the cake together. This will be a bit hit at your next party! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Split Decision Double Dessert
- Bake for about one hour at 300 degrees. Time will vary according to the size of the pan and individual ovens. A smaller pan will make a thicker dessert and take longer to bake. Remove from the oven when the edges begin to brown and the top of the plain cake mixture begins to look golden. Don’t over-bake it, and don’t turn the oven higher than 300 degrees. Rushing it will give an uneven, unsatisfying result. It needs to bake slowly.
- Use any two flavors of pie filling to make this dessert, or use two cans of the same flavor if you happen to have a very agreeable family. But be sure to get “filling” for both of these—not pie apples or pie cherries.
To make a smaller dessert, use one cake mix, one stick of butter, and one can of pie filling. Bake in a standard 9 x 13 cake pan.
