Dump Cake

The other day, I made a Cupa Cupa Cake which is the easiest cake recipe I've ever followed.  It got me thinking about dump cakes and I recalled one my Mom makes.  I googled this just to be sure of the steps even though you can count the ingredients on one hand.  I found out that this cake goes by several names.  Call it what you want, I'm calling it good.

Without further ado, I present to you the Tropical Cake, Hawaiian Cake, Cherry/Pineapple Dump Cake, Cherry Dump Cake.  Um, you get the idea.

What you'll need:
1 box yellow cake mix
1 (20 oz.) can cherry pie filling
1 (16 oz.) can crushed pineapple with juice
1 stick of butter, melted
Flaked Coconut for sprinkling on the topping
Pecans for sprinkling on the topping

How to make it:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9 x 13 pan and pour contents of pineapple can into dish.  Spread out evenly.  Pour cherry pie filling and smooth out over pineapple and top with package of yellow cake mix.  Lastly, top cake mix with pecans and flake coconut.  I went light on this, but I guess you could sprinkle on as much as you like.

Bake for one hour.

I loved your comment and your "meltdown" -- thanks for visiting. My mother used to make this a lot, and I make it still every now and then. Wait till you are my age and everything hurts -- then you will really wonder if you are fossil!

My next door neighbor gave me a recipe for dump cake a few years ago! YUM! When your class is over and things slow down a bit, maybe you will have time to find the things still missing since your last move. Wish there were more hours in the day.
