Dump Cake Recipe
- 1 can of pie filling - cherry is great, but I've used peach, blueberry, apple, etc.
- 1 can of crushed pineapple - don't drain
- 1 box of yellow cake mix
- 1/2 package of sweetened flake coconut
- 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans or walnuts (optional but recommended
- 1 stick of butter
Start by dumping the can of cherry pie filling into a 9 X 13 pan.
Dump in your can of crushed pineapple - don't drain it.
Give it a stir to evenly distribute it. Now dump the dry yellow cake mix right out of the bag all over the mixture.
Dump (you're getting it right?) the flaked coconut over the cake
mix. I've made this without the coconut and nuts before when I didn't
have the ingredients, and it's still good, but I felt like it was
missing its magic.
Dump the chopped nuts all over the top.
Cut up the entire stick of butter into little pats and distribute them over the top of the dump cake. Don't skimp on the butter and think you can get away with less!
Cook in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Yum, yum, this is what it looks like coming out of the oven.
Can I recommend a scoop of vanilla ice cream if you happen to have it
handy? If not, it's still delicious. But if it's just sitting there in
your freezer, get it out and give it a purpose!
