My Great Grandmother used to call it dump cake. I am not sure where she got the recipe? - But it was fabulous. We loved it and now she is gone but the memory's are still there. It was really good! She used bisquick in a lot of her cooking too. I'm wondering if she got the recipe off of it? She used cherry pie filling & I think a white cake? I remember coconut in there too.. Anyone have a recipe like that? I remember all the ingredients just dumped ito a casserole dish (9x13). She claimed it was so easy. We claimed it was so delicious!

Check out these. White cake would work as well as yellow cake mix.

RE: RECIPE: looking 4 dump cake rec.? Anyone heard of it?

I've always used recipe #1 (mostly) from that list. For a "fake" dessert, it is amazing!

I like to use 1 can of sour cherries in juice, drained, added to the 1 can of cherry pie filling.
There is enough goo in the pie filling can to more than cover some extra cherries mixed in. It's just better that way, more actual cherries, but just as sweet and delicious.

I've never made the one you're referring to, but here's one that I've made several times that's seasonally appropriate :-)

The recipe link that ginger st. thomas posted is the dump cake I used to make years ago. It is really good.

I make the first one Ginger posted and take to the field about once every two weeks during harvest and they love it. I don't melt the butter, I slice it thin and put it on the top, next time I am going to melt it.

I always take ice cream or whipped cream to put on top when it is served.

Here is a Pumpkin Pie Dump cake from a local newspaper but don't know which one. I've made it several times since I love pumpkin.

1 Box Yellow cake mix, type with no pudding in mix
1 stick (1/2 C.) butter, divided use
3 eggs, divided use
1 large can pumpkin pie mix
2/3 C. Evaporated milk
1 tsp ground cinnamon
chopped walnuts
Optional topping: whipped cream

Oven 350 degrees
1. Remove 1 cup cake mix & set aside. Mix remainder of cake mix with 1/2 stick of butter and 1 egg.
2. Press mixture into bottom of a 13x9 pan and up the sides a little like a crust.
3. In another bowl mix 3 cups pie mix with 2 eggs and evaporated milk. Pour this mixture into the pan
4. Take remaining cake mix and combine with 1/2 stick of butter and cinnamon until crumbly.
Add walnuts and sprinkle over top of mixture in pan.
5. Bake in preheated oven for 45-50 min. or until knife comes out clean.

Here is another one that I'd consider a "Dump Cake" too.

1/4 c. butter, softened
1/2 C. chopped pecans

RE: RECIPE: looking 4 dump cake rec.? Anyone heard of it?

This is the dump cake my mom always made for us. She uses peaches instead of cherries. Served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream...I'm in heaven!

Ruby's Dump Cake

1 large jar peaches, 290z
1 stick butter/oleo, melted
1 box yellow cake mix
1 cup walnuts or pecans
1 cup shredded coconut

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Into a 9"X13" baking pan dump peaches with juice. Shake the dry cake mix over peaches. Drizzle melted butter over cake mix. Sprinkle coconut over butter and lastly, shake nuts over coconut. Bake for 60 minutes. Easy and good tasting! NancyLouise
