You may be thinking, "what in the world is 'Dump Cake' is this woman crazy..?"  Well, you're not the first person to have thought that and likely not the last.  BUT, you gotta try the cake before jumping to conclusions :) 
Even though I'm not a Southern gal, this is a Southern recipe that is wonderful - sort of like a cobbler but better.  I work with special needs kids in middle school and we do a lot of cooking (yes, I teach kitchen safety and hygiene).  This was a popular choice from the kids.  Leave your comments or email me and let me know what you think :)  Hugs, Cooki~


  • 1 Can crushed pineapple
  • 1 Can cherry pie filling (or other favorite type of pie filling - for ours we used half cherry and half apple - very yummitious)
  • 1 yellow boxed cake mix
  • 1 stick (8Tbls) margarine or butter
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Cool whip or vanilla ice cream

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Grease a 13 X 11 pan
  • Dump the crushed pineapple on the bottom of the pan and smooth out
  • Dump the pie filling on top of the pineapple and smooth out
  • Dump the cake mix on top of the pie filling (you getting it ;)
  • Dot the butter on the top of the cake mix.
  • Add caption
  • Pour the water over the mixture
  • Bake for 40 - 50 minutes until golden brown or toothpick comes out clean
Let cool before putting cool whip on the top as it turns out sort of weird - kinda soft and flat.
As you can see it looks a lovely golden brown color. 

To make cool whip using whipped cream.  Pour the cream into a bowl and mix for 2-3 minutes until stiff.  It's much better than cool whip. 


Remember, to keep the comments coming - they make me feel good - Hugs - Cooki~
