Very easy to make, and it tastes wonderful. You really just dump these ingredients in the pan. I like to have canned cherry pie filling, crushed pineapple and nuts just for this alone.
If you can turn on the oven and use a can opener, you can make this cake. Dump cake gets it name from the fact that all you need to do it to dump your ingredients into the cake pan and bake it. Yes, cake making can be this easy.


Cake mix 10 1/2 Ounce ((Duncan hines, classic))
Canned cherry pie filling 21 Ounce
Canned crushed pineapple 20 Ounce
Walnuts 1 Cup (16 tbs) ((or any other nuts of your choice))
Butter 3/4 Cup (12 tbs) , melted
Cooking spray 2 Dash



1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.

2. In a microwave proof bowl, melt the butter.


3. In a 13 X 9 inch, baking tray spray the bottom and sides with non-stick spray.

4. Put in the cherry pie filling and spread it in the bottom of the tray.

5. Add in the pineapple and spread it over the pie filling.

6. Dump on the nuts and scatter them all over the pie filling.

7. Sprinkle the cake mix, spreading it to cover the filling.

8. Stream the melted butter over the flour mixture, to wet the surface.

9. Bake in the oven for 1 hour or until, the cake is golden brown on top.

10. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.


11. Cut the cake and serve as desired.
