Classic Dump Cake

A little over a year ago I shared this recipe on another blog and since I've been craving it I thought I'd share it again with you! The Classic Dump Cake is one of my all-time favorite desserts. It actually got me through my first pregnancy. Seriously, I would eat at least one a week. And am I the only one who wonders why something so delicious has such a horrible name?

  • 1 can of Crushed Pineapple
  • 1 can of Cherry Pie Filling
  • 1 box of YELLOW cake mix (this does make a difference)
  • 2 sticks of butter (don’t worry you don’t HAVE to use it all)
  • 1/2 cup of chopped pecans (optional)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a 9x13 inch baking pan combine the pineapple and pie filling.  Next comes the cake mix, just spread it out on TOP of the fruit mixture, don’t mix them together.

Butter time! Like I mentioned before you don’t HAVE to use two sticks, in case you’re trying to watch what you eat. Of course, anyone eating dump cake probably isn’t that worried about that.  Just cut the butter into slices and lay on top of the cake mix. I like to add just a bit of pecans too, yummy!  Bake for 45-55 minutes or until it’s golden brown. Classic Dump Cake #cake #recipes
WARNING: this stuff goes fast!  After one night this is what we had left!

  1. Can the cherry filling be substituted. Everything else just sounds so yummy. No one here likes cherries well baked anyway. Do you think apple or strawberry filling would make a difference?
