RECIPE: Dump Cake (for Debbie and Vera)

Posted by Jenn (My Page) on

This is a very popular dessert at work where it has been served many times at picnics, birthday parties, and other functions. It can be served either warm or cold, though warm with vanilla ice cream would be my personal preference. I know it's not sophisticated, but it's really good, and easy. It's very similar to cobbler. Our son-in-law calls it "Cherry Gobbler", because it's so good you want to gobble it all up. :-)

Dump Cake
==================

1 20-oz. can crushed pineapple (in syrup) -- undrained
1 21-oz. can cherry (or blueberry, apple, blackberry) pie filling
1 yellow cake mix (NOT one with pudding in the mix)
1 cup chopped nuts (pecans, walnuts, or almonds)
1 stick butter (do not substitute margarine)
Lightly spray 9 x 13 pan (preferably glass) with Pam (or a light coating of other vegetable oil).

Spread crushed pineapple and cherry pie filling in bottom of pan, gently stirring to mix evenly.

Sprinkle cake mix in an even layer on top; gently "level" with hand, taking care not to poke into fruit layer.

Sprinkle nuts evenly over the top of the cake.

Slice the butter into very thin slices (this works best when the butter is very cold). Place butter evenly over entire top of cake, covering as much of the surface as possible. (NOTE: You may need a little more than one stick of butter, depending on the size of the pan you use.)

Bake at 350F for 45-55 minutes, until top is lightly browned and fruit is bubbling.

===============

I hope you like it!

Made this for a crowd and they enjoyed it. I used apple filling and topped the warm cake with vanilla ice cream.

Like Jen said, it's not sophisticated, but it is tasty.

We made this again, this time with blueberry pie filling and a yellow butter flavored cake mix. Tasted much less artificial than the french vanilla I used last time.

This really is easy and with the icy cold weather we've been having, it makes a nice warm dessert.
