Delicious Dump Cake

Here is another No Recipe Zone dessert for you. It's so easy!! You need a box of yellow cake mix, any kind of cake mix will do. Grab a can of cherry pie filling, a can of crushed pineapple and a stick of butter.

Dump the can of cherry pie filling in the bottom of your baking dish. Next, dump the crushed pineapple on top, mix around with your finger. Just kidding. If you are serving this to guests, use a proper utensil.

Next dump the box of yellow cake mix on top of the fruit mixture. If you like nuts, sprinkle some on top.

Take a stick of butter and slice it all over the top. Bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes, until top is browning.

It's best to let it cool a little before serving. If it's piping hot out of the oven it will ooze all over the place and the fruit filling is hot as hell.

I could literally stand over the stove and eat the topping with a fork. Forget the fruit, I love the buttery crunch of the yellow cake mix on top. Jim and I served this to friends one night and had half a pan left over the next morning. We tossed it. Not because it was bad, but because it is SO good and we didn't need to be standing over the stove eating this dump cake out of the pan with a fork. It's THAT good.


  1. Do you know if this will work with other flavors ...... like Red Velvet? Or is yellow the best.

    I am making the Lemon Chicken tonight .... I can't wait!!!

  2. Oh my word, this takes me back! My mom would always make dump cake for our church luncheons ~ which were alot since my Daddy was a preacher of a small country church. I've made it on a handful of occassions for when I was supposed to bring a dessert to something and it always gets rave reviews from everyone. Thanks for reminding me of this recipie! I'm going to have to make it soon.

  3. Christine, I'm sure this would work with other flavors but haven't experimented with the different cake flavors - just different fruit fillings. Let me know how Red Velvet turns out, sounds GREAT!

  4. Jaime blogged a peach dump cake and it was amazing. It's the BEST COBBLER tasting treat I've had. I'll have to try it with cherries.
