Dump Cake

Dump Cake close-upThis easy dessert recipe is an oldie but goodie.  I think it’s been around since the beginning of time!  If you’ve never had it, you might want to give it a try.  It doesn’t get any easier than this!


  • 1 can cherry pie mix (you could probably use other flavors instead – it doesn’t have to be cherry)
  • 1 6-ounce can crushed pineapple, undrained
  • ½ box white cake mix (save the other half for the next time you make Dump Cake)
  • ½ stick margarine or butter


Dump cherry pie mix into a greased 8×8 pan (I use pie plate).  Stir in crushed pineapple.  Sprinkle cake mix over the top.  Cut margarine in pieces and evenly distribute over cake mix.

Bake one hour at 350 ( baked mine only 50 minutes).

  • Marj says this can be made in the crock pot.  Here are her instructions:  Put a 21oz can of pie filling on the bottom of the crockpot. Sprinkle a whole box of cake mix over the pie filling. Drizzle 1/2 cup butter over all of it and sprinkle with chopped walnuts, if desired.  Cook on low in crockpot 2-3 hours.  Turns out great.  I serve it with vanilla ice cream.
  • Kris says she’s made this recipe with pumpkin pie filling and it was awesome.
