When we hear 'dump cake', it may not sound very appealing. Hence, I am sure you would want to know from where the name originates. It gets its name from the recipe, as all the ingredients are dumped into a baking pan and then baked. The overall presentation is not like a cake and in fact, looks cobbled. Hence, it cannot be categorized under fancy baking. Children can also bake it as there is no mixing involved.

Cherry Dump Cake

Ingredients
  • Cherry Pie Filling, 1 can
  • White Cake Mix, 1 box

Method
  • Pour the cherry pie filling into the baking pan.

  • Pour dry cake mix over the cherry filling.
  • However, do not break the lumps and leave them intact, as they are going to form the "crust" of the cake.
  • Place slices of butter on top of the dry mix, but do not mix it.
  • Bake it at 350 °F, until the cake is golden brown in color.
  • It will take approximately 30 to 45 minutes, but different ovens may require different time settings.
