Dee's Story

I was craving a dump cake and searched my pantry to see what I had on hand. I always have pineapple and mandarin oranges. Usually, I have yellow cake mix, but I only had a pineapple one. I decided it would be a Hawaiian dump cake with all the flavors I love...pineapple, orange, and coconut. yumm
I make a blackberry version too. It's so good with vanilla ice cream, frozen yogurt, or a little heavy cream poured over the top.
For a low sugar version, use fruit in juice pack, sugar free yellow cake mix, and a mix of Stevia, Coconut sugar, and agave nectar as you choose. Delicious! Enjoy!


1 - 21 oz
can crushed pineapple, juice included
2 - 11 oz
cans mandarin oranges, juice included
2/3 c

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9"x13" baking dish with cooking spray. Combine the crushed pineapple, mandarin oranges, cornstarch, salt, and sugar or Stevia in the pan. Mix well and sprinkle the dry cake mix evenly over fruit. Melt butter in microwave and pour evenly over cake mix. Sprinkle with coconut and nuts if desired.
