Dump Cake

First off, sorry for the bad picture.  We had company, so I couldn't get a really good one.

I think this is a terrible sounding name for a cake, but it is called such because it is dumping a bunch of stuff on top of other stuff.  It is really a shameful dessert, because it uses a bunch of box mixes and cans.  Can I really call this a "homemade" dessert?  Who cares!?  It smells incredible while baking and tastes fabulous.  I got this recipe from a friend of mine in Germany, Julie, and was so grateful for the recipe.  It is a great last minute throw together dessert because it literally takes about 5 minutes to put together.  The hardest part is slicing butter.  Wow, tough stuff there, huh?
Our landlord came to inspect the house and we invited him to stay for lunch (Brad's former boss).  I always keep this stuff on hand and decided to use it up because of our upcoming move.  After his first bite, he said "This is fantastic!".  So there it is. Cheat a little and make something- "semi-homemade."


  • 1 can crushed pineapple
  • 1 can cherry pie filling
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • about 1 cup coconut (opt)
  • about 1 cup nuts (opt)
  • 1 1/2 sticks butter (I cut it from original 2 sticks, didn't suffer)

Preheat oven to 350.  In a 9x13, dump pineapple, followed by cherry pie filling.  Try to spread evenly.  Dump yellow cake mix and spread evenly.  Slice butter in pats and place evenly over cake mix.  Top will coconut and nuts.  Bake @ 350 for an 55 min-1 hour.
Wonderful with ice cream or whipped cream.
