The first time I heard of dump cake was when my best friend, Barb made it. I had to have the recipe right then and there. My dad fell in love with it and began requesting it every chance he got. Years later I came across this recipe that added pecans and coconut to the original dump cake recipe thus making it "Hawaiian" Dump Cake and now I love it even more! Serve it warm and add a dollop of ice cream. Heavenly
