  • 20 ounces crushed pineapple
  • 21 ounces cherry pie filling
  • 15.25 ounces yellow cake mix
  • 12 tablespoons butter, sliced


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray the bottom of a 9x13-inch dish with cooking spray.
  • Pour the crushed pineapples into the bottom of the pan. Top the crushed pineapples with cherry pie filling.
  • Sprinkle yellow cake mix evenly over the cherries.
  • Evenly place slices of butter across the whole pan.
  • Bake for 40 to 45 minutes.


  • When buying the cake mix, it is best to pick one that doesn’t have pudding mix in it; check the label to make sure.
  • You’ll want to use a 9×13-inch cake pan so that the texture and consistency are right. I’ve used an 11x 7-inch pan before, and it turned out a little too thick, which changed the delicious texture of the dump cake.
  • Oven temperatures vary and may need to be recalibrated periodically to ensure they are accurate. Make sure to check your cake at the lower end of the recommended baking time.
  • Because dump cakes are so gooey and moist, it can be hard to determine if they’re done. It’s normal to see some wet spots and some spots that are more crisp and done.
