This Cherrylicious Dessert Will Make You Cry Tears Of Joy

5 dessert ideas cherry dump cake

One of the reasons I don’t bake as often these days as I used to, is that I am way too busy with work. I would love to eat all those delicious treats if I could just whip them up in a heartbeat and go back to work as soon as I’m done.

With this recipe, I actually can do just that! Dump cakes are so awesome – you literally throw all the ingredients into your baking dish and that’s it. No time-consuming steps or fancy ingredients you never have at hand when you want to make a cake. Plus, it tastes so delicious you’ll be wondering why on Earth you ever made those complicated cakes, anyway!



1 oz. can cherry pie filling

2 cups Gold Medal all-purpose flour

1 – 2 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 1/4 cup Domino white sugar

2 Eggland’s eggs

1/2 cup Land O Lakes butter softened, 1 stick + 2 tsp

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp grated lemon zest

1 tsp vanilla extract



Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease and flour a 9×13 inch baking pan (or a round oven pan of a similar size) and dump the cherry pie filling in.

Put the remaining ingredients into a bowl of food processor and mix until combined. If you don’t have a food processor, simply whisk the ingredients together. Dump the mixture into the pan over the cherry pie filling.

Bake for about 1 hour. Let cool for a few minutes and serve with ice cream.



Quick tip: Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
