Ingredients For dump cake

  • 9x12 or smaller baking pan (depends on how deep you want it)
  • 1 can
    crushed pineapple (not drained)
  • 1 can
    cherry pie filling (or other fruit flavor)
  • 1 box
    yellow cake mix
  • 1 1/2 stick
  • chopped nuts (as desired)

How To Make dump cake

  • 1
    Evenly spread all of the crushed pineapple in the pan.
  • 2
    Evenly spread the cherry pie filling on top of the pineapple. I used a rubber spatula to scoop some from the can and then spread.
  • 3
    Put cake mix in a bowl.
  • 4
    Melt 1/2 stick of butter and mix with cake mix until it gets crumbly.
  • 5
    Cut 1 stick of butter into slices. I used cold butter and sliced with a butter slicer I got years ago from a catalog. Place butter slices evenly on top of the crumbled cake mix.
  • 6
    Sprinkle nuts on top (optional).
  • 7
    Bake at 350 degrees on middle rack for 30-35 minutes or until top is golden brown. Check at 25 minutes first time to be sure of the timing for your oven.

    Let cool for 1 hour. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
