  • 28 ounces cherry pie filling (, 1 large can )

  • 12 Tablespoons butter (, cold)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease the bottom of a 9×13″ pan. Pour the crushed pineapple into the bottom of the pan. Then top with the cherry pie filling.
  2. Dump the cake mix over the fruit. Then slice the butter into thin pieces (about 24 pieces) over the top. I place 6 rows of butter across the top and 4 down, so it melts evenly. Top with nuts if desired.

  4. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream if desired.

For the peach dump cake: Dump the peaches into a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle the cake mix over the top of the fruit. Slice the butter into tablespoons and distribute evenly over the surface of the cake mix. Bake until the tops are brown and bubbly, 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Why are they called dump cakes?

A dump cake is an American dessert similar to a cobbler but with a cake-like topping. It is so named because it is prepared by “dumping” ingredients (typically canned fruit or pie filling, followed by a boxed cake mix) into a cake pan without mixing.

How long is a dump cake good for?
