“This recipe for dump cake is more like a cobbler type dessert than it is a cake. I serve it in a bowl with whipped cream, ice cream, or frozen whipped topping. It is quick to prepare and it is delicious.”

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. In the prepared dish, layer the cherry pie filling and the drained pineapple. Sprinkle the dry cake mix over the top, covering evenly. Pour the melted margarine over the cake mix, and sprinkle the top with the coconut and chopped walnuts.
  3. Bake 50 to 60 minutes in the preheated oven, until browned and bubbly.

Delicious & easy! I used only 1/2 cup of melted butter & 1/2 cup of the drained pineapple juice so it wouldn't have so much fat from the butter. I used light cherry pie filling too. Made mine with the coconut & pecans under the cake layer so they wouldn't burn (thanks to the reviewer that added that line a while ago!). Turned out quite tasty & served warm from the oven with vanilla fat-free frozen yogurt. Reheated well too! Yum!



this is a WONDERFUL and easy dessert! Definitely more like a cobbler, so it needs to be served with vanilla ice cream! If you sprinkle the coconut and nuts under the cake mix (as one other reviewer suggested), it eliminates the burning and elminates the need of having to remember to add the coconut towards the end of baking. A good variation on this is to use apple pie filling and a spice cake mix!!!



Great recipe! Also made it with blueberry pie filling in place of the cherries and strawberry pie filling minus the pineapple. So easy and yummy. I also make it the night before so it has time to set.
