This dessert gets it’s name because the ingredients are dumped into the pan it is cooked in. Dump Cake is what I call a pantry recipe. This is where most of the items for the recipe can be found in your pantry. The recipe takes 5 minutes to put together and 1 hour to cook. I used to make this frequently for my family and they loved it, especially when we had vanilla ice cream to put on top when it came warm out of the oven. It is also great when you have company or need that last minute dessert to take to a potluck.
For another idea, you can use blueberry pie filling in place of cherry.
1 box yellow cake mix
2 can cherry pie filling
1 can crushed pineapple, drained
1 stick of butter
chopped pecans, if desired
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a 13×9 pan spray non-stick cooking spray. Add the cans of cherry pie filling and drained crushed pineapple to the pan and stir together. Sprinkle all of the yellow cake mix over the fruit and do not mix. This is going to create a crust on top when done cooking. Next, cut tabs of butter and scatter them over the top of the cake. If you choose to have chopped pecans, sprinkle as many as you like on top. Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees until brown and bubbly. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream on top!
