The Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make the dump cake (the exact measurements and full recipe instructions are below in the easy to print recipe card):

  • Crushed pineapple – no need to drain the pineapple–the juice is a part of the moisture needed in the recipe.
  • Cherry pie filling – use any brand of canned cherry pie filling you like.
  • Yellow cake mix – we used Pillsbury, but any brand you prefer will work well.
  • Butter – use regular salted or unsalted butter, depending on your preference.
