Cherry-Pineapple Dump Cake
Hi everybody :)
Today I'm sharing one of my family favorites; Cherry-Pineapple Dump Cake. The name, "Dump Cake", comes from the fact that all the ingredients used in the cake are basically dumped in a pan on top of each other. This particular dump cake have been seen around often on other blog site. It's simple, easily prepared, and taste delicious.
Because it's a family favorite, I been making it for years. In the beginning I discovered a problem: When cutting the butter into thin slices over the cake mix, not all the cake mix is covered with the butter, so you would end up with dry cake spots. To fix this; I first tried melting the butter as I seen in some of the dump cakes recipes, but I was not please with that result either. Then I came up with this idea while making biscuit one day, and it produced a buttery flaky dump cake every time. I put an extra step in the recipe. To ensure the cake mix don't have dry flour spots after baking, I use a pastry blender. Here's what I did...
Cherry-Pineapple Dump Cake adapted Favorite Brand Name: Easy-to-Bake Cookbook or here
1(20 oz.) can crushed pineapple with juice; undrained
1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling
1 package DUNCAN HINES® Moist Deluxe® Classic Yellow Cake Mix
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, cut into thin slices
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 13×9-inch pan.
Dump pineapple with juice into prepared pan. Spread evenly.
Dump in pie filling. Spread evenly.
Sprinkle cake mix evenly over cherry layer. (I blend the cake mix and butter with a pastry blender until it resemble small peas, than sprinkled it over cherry layer. This extra step ensure that the cake mix is well coated with butter, so there is no dry cake spots.)
Sprinkle pecans over cake mix. (Because hubby don't like nuts, I only put nuts on part of the cake) Dot with butter. Bake at 350°F for 50 minutes or until top is lightly browned. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Tip: You can use DUNCAN HINES® Moist Deluxe® Pineapple Supreme Cake Mix in place of Moist Deluxe® Yellow Cake Mix.
