I’ll be honest.. this recipe is really called DumpCake. I’ve used it for nearly 25 years and it’s a family favorite. But there’s just something about that name that turns folks off.. so I exercised some creative license.. and changed the name. Lol
This dessert is so easy to make, you may feel a little guilty for all the compliments you’re going to get from your people, just for making it. It’s that good. And it’s dang easy.
1 box of yellow cake mix
1 can of cherry pie filling (20oz)
1 can of crushed pineapple (20oz)
2 sticks of butter (1/2 pound)
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
Preheat oven to 350°
Dump the cans of cherry pie filling and crushed pineapple into an ungreased 9×13 pan, mix together well and spread fruit over entire bottom of pan.
Dump entire bag/box of yellow cake mix unto the cherry/pineapple mixture, spread it out evenly.
Cut the two sticks of butter into slices and place on top of cake mix.
(Optional) Chop 1 cup of nuts and spread evenly over the butter slices.
Bake at 350° for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until top is golden brown. (The ideal time for me and my oven seems to be 55 minutes.)
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream (Or just by itself!)
-Store leftovers in fridge (You MAY need an accountability group if you have leftovers, because it will take the strength of Sampson to resist EATING IT ALL. Lol No lie. So… fair warning.)
