Dump Cake

My mom said I should include this recipe. It is by Lt. Nick Harris, and appeared in Pete's Better Homes and Barracks collection (1984). 

  • 1 can cherry pie filling
  • 1 can chunky pineapple
  • 1 box lemon cake mix
  • 1 stick butter
  • 8" x 14" baking dish

This is a great recipe when the need arises for a quick, sweet dessert.

Here's all you do - dump both cans of fruit into the dish and mix. Dump the unprepared cake mix on top and spread evenly. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Cut the butter stick into 1/2 inch pieces and place uniformly on top. Place in oven for 30 minutes or until browned. Serve warm or chilled.
