Pineapple-Cherry Dump Cake

It's usually my responsibility to provide desserts for our family dinners on Sunday evenings. Some weeks, I am really busy and don't have time to create anything elaborate. At times like this, I usually throw together something very simple, like a dump cake. I got this particular recipe from the 101 Things To Do With A Cake Mix cookbook. Even though it's super simple, I'll still give you the recipe with step-by-step photos.

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 can crushed pineapple
  • 1 can cherry pie filling
  • 1/2 to 1 stick butter (My husband LOVES butter, so I used an entire stick)

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9x13 pan.
Dump 1/2 of the cake mix into pan, spreading to evenly distribute.
Dump crushed pineapple in pan, spreading to evenly distribute.
Dump cherry pie filling over pineapple, spreading to evenly distribute.

Dump the remainder of the cake mix over the top of the cherry pie filling, spreading to evenly distribute. Top with thinly sliced butter.

(I forgot to take a picture before putting in the oven, so here's a pictue with the butter slightly melted from being in the oven for a few minutes.)

Serve warm with ice or cooled with whipped topping.
