Dump Cake

This is one of those recipes that I use when everyone is in the mood for a sweet dessert that is quick and easy to make.


  • 1 (20 ounces) can crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 1 (21 ounces) can prepared more fruit cherry pie filling
  • 1 (18.25 ounces) box yellow cake mix
  • 2 sticks of butter or margarine, each cut into 12 slices
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts (your choice - optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (325 for glass baking dish). Have a 9 by 13-inch baking pan ready.

Dump undrained pineapple baking dish or pan and spread it out evenly.

Using a spoon, dump globs of cherry pie filling evenly on top of the pineapple.

Sprinkle the cake mix evenly over the cherry and pineapple layers.

Cut butter into slices with a butter knife and place slices evenly over cake mix.

Sprinkle nuts on top if you're using them.


  1. Yum, this looks great! I love anything with cherry pie filling :)

    BUT - how long do you bake it at 350?!

  2. Oh my gosh!! Wow!! This sounds great and so easy to make!! :) I am going to have to add this to my desserts to try out!

  3. This is one of my favorite desserts! So easy! Hubbie doesn't like the cherries though, so I'm gonna have to try strawberries sometime!
