Five-Star Cherry Pineapple Dump Cake

Whenever we do a potluck barbecue or church luncheon, I like to try and offer to bring the dessert. Not only can I whip this up super fast, everyone always enjoys it. There’s nothing more satisfying than watching the people you love enjoy something that you have made for them. There is hardly ever any leftovers either so I don’t have to worry about storing anything. I just wash out the pan at the end of the day and clean up is done!

You will be the talk of the party when you show up with this yummy dump cake. Nobody will believe how easy it is to make either!



1 can crushed Dole pineapple, with juice

1 can cherry pie filling

¾ cup chopped nuts

1 box Duncan Hines yellow cake mix (dry)

1 stick Land O’ Lakes butter


Use a 9×12-inch pan, ungreased.

Spread in layers, crushed pineapple, cherry pie filling, chopped pecans (reserving (1/4 cup), dry cake mix, butter (cut-up in small pieces) and remaining pecans

Bake about 25 minutes at 350 degrees or until golden brown on top.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.




Quick Tip: Use a vanilla or cherry cake mix instead of yellow.
