Have you ever made a dump cake before? Or a dump dessert?

It’s a horrible name that doesn’t make it sound appetizing…but when you think about why it’s called that, it makes sense.

You literally dump ingredients into a skillet and bake.

When it comes to dump desserts, this Pistachio Fluff Salad is a perfect example of a no bake treat.

How to make Dump Cake

Preheat oven to 35o degrees F.

In a large 12-inch skillet, dump blueberry pie filling. Top with crushed pineapple. You can mix it, or not!

Sprinkle dry lemon cake mix over the top of the fruit. DO NO MIX.

Lay tablespoons of cut butter over the dry cake mix.

Bake cake for about 50-55 minutes until top is brown and fruit is bubbling.

Top with homemade whipped cream or ice cream!

For the homemade whipped cream, beat heavy cream, almond extract, and powdered sugar in a stand mixer for about 3-5 minutes until soft peaks form. Use immediately or store for 24 hours in refrigerator.

Can I make this in a 9×13 baking dish?

Absolutely!

Can I make other flavors?

Yes. Just think of all the possibilities of dump cake flavors. Swap out the cake mix for your favorite.

Then substitute the pie filling. You can skip the pineapple in any of these option!

Chocolate Cake with Strawberry Pie Filling is a great combo.

Spice Cake with Apple Pie Filling is true comfort food.

  1. I make this all the time with yellow cake mix. I never thought to use lemon! Guess who is going to the store later?! Thanks for the great idea!!

    1. There are so many flavor options, and I usually use a yellow cake too when making skillet cakes…but the lemon with the blueberry was just perfect 🙂

  2. Just stumbled across this recipe on fb and the pan set is gorgeous. I need new pans. Question in the recipe is there something that I can substitute for pineapple? (food allergy)

  3. I am definitely going to try this, can’t wait and the pans look amazing, I have been looking for some stainless steel pans and these are the ones..I love them

  4. Oh my, what a fabulous giveaway. Those pans are just stunning! And the dump cake doesn’t look too bad, either. 🙂

  5. Love blueberry and lemon! Can’t wait to try this tonight! I do have a question, though….if I don’t use a skillet, what size baking dish should I use? Thank you!

  6. I’ve discovered the lemon berry combo couple of months ago and can not get enough of it. Great cake and so easy to make it!

  7. Yum! this is so making my want this in my mouth right now! I love the combinations of the lemon and blueberries!

  8. I’ve always loved Nambe and the pans are just gorgeous. The cake looks totally yum. Lemon and blueberry are two of my favorite flavors separately and together.

  9. Oooo Aimee those pans look fantastic! So pretty – and so is the dump cake! Love blueberry and lemon combo too 😀
