Cherry Dump Cake

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.

Serves 10-12

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.  uncooked dump cakeNext, 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!

About Karen Ann Lockyer

At the age of 21, I married my husband, AC and moved from Texas to Florida. I was a long way from home and missed my family. So I began cooking the recipes my Mom had cooked. I quickly became a Mom and wanted to give my children the same experience I had growing up with meals around the dinner table every night. I started with the classics like chicken and dumplings, pot roast, chicken enchiladas and desserts. Every good meal has to end with something sweet. Now my children, Lauren, 22 and AJ, 20 are grown. I spend my time in the kitchen expanding my cooking skills and writing down recipes. I am here to share with you the recipes I grew up on and the ones my kids and AC love. I also travel with AC on his business trips and try to find great restaurants and food along the way. I attribute my love for cooking and food to my family who always encourage me and enjoy being my guinea pigs.
