Check out what our friends over at 3GLOL has to say about this one,

“I found the recipe in my BEST of the BEST from TEXAS cookbook.  Not sure why a Hawaiian Dump Cake was in that book.  But when I saw the list of ingredients, I had to make it.  Kinda reminds me of a Banana Split without the banana and ice cream.

In fact, this cake is most awesome when served warm with a scoop (or two or three) of vanilla ice cream on top.  *Licking my lips just thinking about it.”

I’m licking my lips too, Y’all.  This is such an awesome and tasty recipe that will likely stay in your family for years to come!
