What is Dump Cake

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 am drooling over these pans. I WANT THEM!! They would look super great on my new Bosch Gas range.

  2. Beautiful Cookware! I love when you and others have give aways or specials features, because I probably would not have known about this wonderful cookware by Nambe, if it wasn’t featured on your our blog.

  3. The cookware is beautiful! I just made a cherry dumpcake the other night, I’ll have to try it with blueberry next time.

    1. Oooh, I do love cherry too. This was a fun twist with the lemon and blueberry though 🙂

  4. This cake sounds sooo good! I love dump cakes! These pans would be wonderful to have in the kitchen. Would be really nice to own.

  5. I don’t think I have ever drooled over cookware before … those pieces are just beautiful! Now let me go update my Christmas wish list 🙂
