Pineapple Cherry Dump Cake Recipe

This is such a simple recipe, but “oh-so-yummy”. It took my daughter and I about 10 minutes to put together. The hardest part was waiting for the cake to finish baking. About 10 minutes into the hour bake-time the house started to smell amazing. We had planned to make this for dessert after dinner, but ended up sampling it as soon as it came out of the oven. Careful if you do that … it is piping hot.

Here’s what we did (the full recipes is at the end):

Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease a 9×13 baking dish.

Pour a can of cherry pie filling in the baking dish.

Cherry Pie Filling

Open a can of crushed pineapple and pour it on top of the cherries.

Pineapple

Sprinkle a yellow cake mix on top and smooth it out. Cut a stick of butter into slices and put them on top of the cake. I used 1 stick of butter and it wasn’t quite enough. I think next time I’ll use a stick and a half.

prebake

Bake for 60 minutes or until the cake is golden-brown on the top. Don’t be alarmed if it bubbles and the crust moves during the baking process. It only looks like it’s going to explode. Be warned … this smells amazing. We couldn’t wait for it to be done.

Here’s what ours looked like out of the oven.

Last but not least, here it is in the bowl… it looks so foggy because it was still piping hot which made for a nice photo effect.
