Holiday Food Recipes: Dump Cake
One of my Dad's favorite holiday delectable treats is called Dump Cake. For those who don't know, Dump Cake sounds a lot better than it's name. But the term is very appropriate. We will be dumping a lot of ingredients in this cake...and it will be very messy when it is all said and done. If you are looking at the picture, the best description is: A cobbler with cake mix.
Here we go:
2 can(s) cherry pie filling (you can use peaches, blueberries and strawberries)
2 can(s) crushed pinneapples
1 box yellow cake mix
1 stick butter
1 package pecans, in pieces (optional, as I have said before, I am not a fan of nuts)
- First use an aluminum square or rectangle pan. (If you use more fruit, then the recipe calls for, you will need a larger pan. I recommend more fruit, but I like a messy cake) and open all 4 cans of cherry filling and DUMP them in the pan
- Then DUMP the Pineapple cans in
- Spread the fruit evenly throughout the pan.
- Open the box of yellow cake mix and spread the dry cake mix ON TOP of the fruit, until it is covering every inch.
- Take 2 stick of butter and slice it thinly covering the cake mix. (If you like pecans, this would be done now.)
- Bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes and keep and eye on it.
- When the time is ready, take it out, let it cool and serve with ice cream or whip cream.
