Dump Cake

April 16, 2015


Is it just me or every time I log on to Pinterest I see dump cakes. I have never tried one until now! It was super easy and very yummy. It seriously could not be any easier. I would say that is turns out more like a cobbler than a cake in my opinion but lets not get technical. This thing is delicious! And not helping me lose the baby weight!!!!





  • 1 (20-ounce) can pineapple chunks, drained
  • 1 (20-ounce) can cherry pie filling
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 cup butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly spray a 9″ x 13″ pan and spread it around to cover the bottom of the pan.
  2. Dump the pineapple chunks as evenly as possible on top of the cherries. Dump the dry cake mix on top of the fruit and smooth it out with the back of a spoon so it is level and covering all of the fruit. Melt the butter and carefully pour it over the dry cake mix. DO NOT STIR IT! Do try to get the butter to cover everything as evenly as possible.
  3. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes, until the top is set like a crust and golden brown. Serve with a heaping pile of whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.


It is important not to mix the layers together. As it bakes, the juice of the fruit comes up and the butter dribbles down and you end up with a delicious dessert with a buttery top crust. If you don’t have pie filling, you can omit it and the recipe will still work. Try substituting blueberry pie filling for the cherry too.
