Dump Cake

I am hearing requests for the recipe. I would LOVE to share my secret day in the dumps cake!

Here are the ingredients:

Remember you can change up the fruit. I have heard of using blueberry pie filling and pineapple. Apple pie filling and cherries. You can dump what you like! I love cherries and pineapple because of the tart taste.

Add the fruit into a pan (I can't remember the size. HA! Not the big 9 x 12 or whatever and not a 8x8. You want to have it a little deep but not too deep because the butter will kill you if it isn't spread out a bit.) Then add the cake mix evenly. Melt two sticks of butter and pour on top. Some people cut it up and lay it on top. I like it melted so that it soaks in more easily.

Heat at:


Until it is nice and golden brown. It usually takes 30ish minutes. My hint is when I can start to smell it!!!

There you have it, Dump Cake!!!! I like to eat my at room temperature. Grumps likes his HOT! Adding ice cream is a winner too!


Let me know when you make it and you need a friend to dump with!!! I'll bring the wine!

*Edited to say that one stick of butter equals a half a cup. SO 2 sticks of butter equals one cup for my metric friends!

Thanks for visiting me! And the post you wrote about being done with the trying - I totally get it. I'm there too - maybe not compared to the general population, but definitely compared to my usual obsessive, temping, sex-timing self. Good luck to you!

Hmmm, I never thought about serving it with wine, but what a wonderful idea! And if you ever get out to the Phoenix area (really, it's a dry heat) then I will make you a dump cake.

When you said that you like it at room temperature I had a flashback to high school. Cold Pop Tarts. Do you still eat Pop Tarts?

Yum. I like dump cake. I just don't like the name. My mind is in the sewer.

Yummy, Sunny! Thanks so much for sharing this. (And I'm with Mel--you gotta love that it's so easy!)

Just a question, how much is in a "stick of butter"? 1 cup? Thanks and I'll be sure to make it this Summer!

e. I have that same question all the time. After eight years I think I have it down...a stick of butter is like one of our squares of margarine. So 1/2 a cup. Right, S? That's how much I use for my dump cake anyhow ;)

Cynthia said...

Yum-O! That sounds so good!

I missed cake day - family was visiting and we were constantly on the go! I still haven't tried the dump cake with cherries, but looking at these pics really really makes me want to! It looks so yummy!

BTW, I use a 12x9 pan to make mine. I don't have anything smaller than that but bigger than an 8x8. So it turns out a little thinner than yours, but it still tastes yummy!
