Dump Cake

I might have to think about renaming this dessert. It doesn’t sound very appetizing, does it? The ease and yumminess make up for the name though. 

This is all you need:

1 large can crushed pinapple

1 large can cherry pie filling

1 box yellow cake mix (keep dry)

1 cup butter

1 cup coconut

1 cup nuts

In an ungreased 9 x 13″ pan, layer each ingredient in order.

Don’t mix the ingredients together, just dump them on top of each other (hence, the name).

I only add nuts and coconut to half the cake because I have some picky eaters. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

You can top with cool whip or ice cream, but I didn’t have either. I always have the ingredients for dump cake though.

My family loves it. We ate the whole cake last night.

    I make this all the time. I don’t use the pineapple…instead I use one can apple and one can cherry. I also skip the nuts. Great with vanilla ice cream on top.

    I just made this, but I substituted mini chocolate chips for the nuts.
