How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease the bottom of 9"x13" cake pan. Pour crushed pineapple in bottom of pan and evenly distribute. Pour cherry pie fillings over the top of pineapple, and spread as evenly as possible.
  • Dump the DRY cake mix on top of the cherry-pineapple mixture and smooth out as much as possible.
  • Slice butter into pats and distribute in a even pattern on top of cake mix. Sprinkle with pecans and coconut (if desired - for those who don't like nuts or coconut, eliminate this step).
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes until done - watch so it doesn't burn. Cool before serving. Top with whipped topping or whipped cream, if desired.

    I cook for a large group and have made this and pumpkin dump cake for dessert and gotten raves and numerous requests for the recipe. Very good and very rich.

    Mmm, we love dump cake around here. I've never used pineapple in it, though, or nuts. Will have to try that.

    I do this one with a few variations and it is loved by everyone. I use different pie fillings and actually use two instead of just one and mix them and the pineapple together and "dump" on the bottom - that way you don't have to grease the pan.
