When it came to Sunday Supper or last-minute visitors, cherry pineapple dump cake was my mom’s top pick from all her many cake recipes! Dump cake has been around for generations and for good reason!
These simple fruit cake recipes are made all in one pan, take a handful of minutes to make, and turn out picture-perfect every time- despite their less than an attractive name! Let’s head to the kitchen and get started!
You’ll be hooked on these super simple, super delicious cakes! After this recipe, my two other favorites are cherry crisp, peach dump cake, and apple dump cake. You’ve got to try them all!
20 oz crushed pineapple, undrained (we used Dole)
21 oz cherry pie filling (we used Duncan Hines)
1 pkg moist yellow cake mix (we used Betty Crocker)
½ – 1 cup shaved almonds or chopped walnuts
½ cup (1 stick) butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350˚. Butter bottom and sides of a 9×13 inch baking pan.
Dump pineapple with juice and spread into bottom of pan. Top with cherry pie filling.
Sprinkle the top evenly with dry cake mix, add nuts if using then drizzle the top with melted butter. Bake uncovered at 350˚F for 55-60 min or until bubbly and browned.
