Cherry Pineapple Dump Cake

Cherry Pineapple Dump Cake
45 Min

This amazing dessert is perfectly "presidential," or at least we like to say it is, 'cause we got the inspiration for this recipe from all those stories about George Washington chopping down a cherry tree. This easy dump cake recipe is one we're sure he would have loved.

What You'll Need

  • 1 (21-ounce) can cherry pie filling
  • 1 (20-ounce) can crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 1 (15-1/4-ounce) box yellow cake mix
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 stick butter, melted

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Combine pie filling and pineapple with liquid in prepared baking dish; mix well.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine cake mix and cinnamon. Sprinkle dry cake mixture evenly over fruit. Top with walnuts and drizzle with butter.
  4. Bake 45 to 50 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbly. Serve warm or cold.

Instead of drizzling melted butter over top of nuts, I cut the butter into small pats and place over nuts. It melts more evenly and end product is prettier.

I have made this and other Dump Cakes and they are very good. I love Cherries and Pineapples. I have had some turn out a little dry even when I do use lots of butter and melt it. I was wondering if you could mix the Cake mix with the melted Butter and maybe an Egg and pour the batter over the fruit and give a little stir. I know it may not cover the fruit but I love a cobber with a the bake batter in the mixture. Have not tried. Can it be done and how? I hate to try and it not work.

Hi there! The Test Kitchen has not tested the recipe in such a manner, and so we can't tell you that it will work. If you decide to try it, let us know how it turns out.

This is practically the same recipe as the cherry crumb cobbler given earlier on the list. Come on people, get creative!!

I have made this for years! I cut my butter into pad and place over the cake mix! I have always had to use a little over a full stick of butter or the mix was dry in places! I use pecans but I put them on about ten mins before the cake is done! I am making it today as everyone makes me bring any time we have a get together! I have even used peaches and cherry pie filling!

I wasn't watching it, but when mine got done, I had dry cake mix still. So maybe should have mixed it up before sticking in oven. I ended up mixing it afterword and so now I have no crumble.

I made this, it is so easy, and delicious. It was an absolute hit.

Can I make this with blueberry filling?

Yes, you can use blueberry filling in the dump cake. Let us know how it turns out!

This is the perfect blend of cherry, pineapple (my fave), and crumble. Simply yummy!

Does this need to be refrigerated?

Yes, this cake should be refrigerated after cooling.

It is so good cold!

Just finished making this dump cake. Outcome not as expected. Cake mix was not combined, flour on top not appealing. To Fix Stirred in the fix then steamed (5 mins more) by covering with Al foil, and then baked 5 mins more. What can be done to distribute the butter more evenly?

We're sorry to hear this dump cake didn't turn out as you expected. To distribute the butter more evenly we recommend melting 1 stick of butter, instead of cutting into thin slices and placing on top of crumb mixture. This should help you have a more even distribution of butter. You could even try using more melted butter on top of your dessert. We hope you'll try this again and let us know how it goes!
