Let's make a dump cake!!!

I took dump cake to our party over at Ms. Patrice's farm celebrating her and Wendell's one-year anniversary of Chats on the Farmhouse Porch....and since some of you asked for the recipe....well, I felt obliged to share!!!  Here's my version....

Dump Cake 

1 Can of Cherry Pie Filling 
1 Can of Crushed Pineapple, including juice 
(I use unsweetened)
1 Box Golden Recipe Cake Mix (or yellow will do)
1 1/4 Sticks of Margarine (I use 2 sticks....and, melt it in the microwave in one of those really neat Pampered Chef microwave containers)
1/2 cup of nuts (or more!!!)
1/2 to 3/4 cup of coconut (flaked)

Dump pie filling in 9 x 13 inch pan.
Dump pineapple over fruit.
Dump (actually sprinkle) cake mix over filling. 
Pour the melted butter over the cake mix.
Scatter nuts on top.

 I wait until the cake is about done...take it out of the oven and sprinkle the coconut over it...put it back in the oven and turn the oven on broil to brown the coconut...but, be very careful, or you will burn the coconut...I keep turning the pan to make sure the coconut browns evenly....or, you can toast the coconut ahead of time and sprinkle it over the cake!!! 

I've just totally made myself hungry for a big scoop of this stuff....with some Mayfield vanilla ice cream!!!

  1. Cool! It is aptly named - just dump it all in. I'll have to try it
