Cherry Pineapple Dump Cake Recipe
1 Can (20 oz) crushed pineapple with juice, undrained
1 Can (21 oz) cherry pie filling
1 pkg. classic yellow cake mix
1 Cup pecans or walnuts, chopped
1/2 Cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, cut into thin slices
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 13×9-inch pan.
Dump the pineapple with juice into pan. Spread evenly.
Dump in the cherry pie filling, spread evenly.
Sprinkle the cake mix evenly over cherry layer.
Sprinkle pecans or walnut over cake mix. Then, dot with butter.
Bake for 50 minutes or until top is lightly browned.
Serve warm, if desired
Dump cake isn’t the most appetizing name for a dessert. The name describes the preparation technique use to make it. Even that doesn’t sound appealing. It is hard to believe this lovely dessert comes from just dumping some ingredients into a pan and popping it into the oven.
Cherry dump cake is kind of like a fruit crisp. Or maybe like a cobbler with its crumbly topping. It is hard to describe but it is delicious. And popular. And, did I mention, easy 🙂
I haven’t tried it but I’m willing to bet it is equally good with different fruit filling. You might try substituting the cherry pie filling with peach, strawberry or blueberry.

This is a wonderful recipe. Last summer we had some young married couples from church over for coffee and dessert and NONE of them had ever had this and thought it was the greatest thing. I love when that happens…especially when the dish is SOOOOOO simple 🙂
Dear Butter Yum, The little dish came from Home Goods and cost under 2 dollars!
What a lovely dish… seriously, I love that scalloped baking dish!!
This recipe looks delicious. I make a similar recipe to this without the nuts. I will have to try your version.

I've heard a lot about *dump cakes* but have never made one ~ your photos have sold me on giving this a try this Sunday when we have friends over to dinner :o)
You know I have seen this recipe many times over the years but have never made it. It would be a big hit with my brother and husband. Thanks for the reminder of how easy it is.
I've made dump cakes before, so easy and so yummy. This one however looks like a dump cake extraordinaire
