    Enjoy this quick and easy dump cake recipe!

    Dump cake is usually a combination of canned fruit, with cherries and pineapples being some of the most preferred. Fruit is usually drained and combined on the bottom of a baking dish. Next, people add yellow or white cake mix, simply pouring the mix right over the fruit. Recipes vary but most then direct people to add slices of butter on top of the cake mix. When the cake is baked it has a lovely top crust that is buttery over a layer of sweet fruit.

    It’s difficult to find dessert recipes that are easier to make than dump cake. With the exception of stirring the fruit, you really need to do very little to assemble this cake. It’s a great recipe for beginning cooks, especially young ones. Even little kids can make dump cake because they usually don’t have to measure ingredients.

    You can change the way this dessert tastes by changing fruits you use. Though canned fruits are frequently recommended, you can also use fresh fruit. Some people have suggested combinations that will make these cakes special and unusual. You can find recipes for dump cake made with cooked rhubarb and strawberry gelatin. If you want fruit to be slightly sweeter, you can coat the fruit with sugar and allow it to macerate (soak in its juices for a couple of hours), or if you’re in a hurry, you can use canned pie filling for just about any type of fruit pie.

    For those of you who must have chocolate with dessert, there are chocolate recipes for dump cake. These are similar to those using white or yellow cake mix, but instead substitute chocolate cake mix. One popular recipe is a take on the black forest cake, where you place chocolate cake mix over canned cherries or cherry pie filling.

    Sometimes the term dump cake doesn’t refer to the cobbler like dessert just described. Instead some people may call any cake a dump cake if you can mix all its ingredients in one bowl. Usually cakes require several bowls that separate dry and wet ingredients, which can get complicated. Quick cakes are often of the “dump” type and many cake mixes can also be made in one bowl.

    Ingredients:
    20 ounces crushed pineapple
    16 ounces cherry pie filling
    1 package yellow cake mix (Betty Crocker), dry
    1 1/2 sticks butter, sliced

    How to:
    Open and dump the can of pineapple into a 9 x 13 inch cake pan. Use a spoon to even it out in the pan. Open the can of cherry pie filling and gently use the spoon to dump it evenly on top of thepineapple. Open the box of cake mix and gently distribute the dry mix evenly on top of the fruit. Do not stir.

    Now, either melt the butter and pour it evenly over the dry cake mix, or you can do as I do and cut the butter into little chunks and place the little chunks of butter evenly on top of the cake mix. (I use about 1 1/2 sticks of butter). If using, sprinkle the nuts on top.

    Bake at 350 for 50 minutes to one hour or until the cake is bubbly and golden brown. Serve warm (not hot) or at room temperature with or without a scoop of ice cream on top.

    Serving Size: 12.
