Make Your Hubby Happy 5 Ingredient Dump Cake

My husband has the sweetest tooth of anyone I have ever met. He could have a dessert after every meal…if I made it for him. Now, it’s not the healthiest idea to eat a super sweet cake or pie after every meal, but I do like to surprise my hard-working guy once in a while with one of his favorite treats.

When I found this recipe at Recipe Lion, I knew that it was going to be the perfect option for me and my family. It looked simple to make, which is what I need with my busy lifestyle, and it had all of my husband’s favorite flavors.

I grabbed up the ingredients at the shopping center the next time I went, and I made it for him the very next day. When he got home from his twelve hour shift, he gobbled down dinner it what seemed like about two fork fulls.

I knew he was still going to be hungry so I told him to stay put and brought him a nice plate of this with some ice cream. His face light up like it was Christmas. He devoured the whole dish and then went back for seconds later on that night.

This is one of my new favorites to make because it’s just so simple! Everyone is happy when this comes out of the oven.

Quick Tip: Try with chopped pecans or almonds.



I use 20 oz cans of pie filling and pineapple. Ree Drummond has this on food network website without the nuts. It bakes for 45-55 minutes there too. Cake mix gets nice crunchy crust.

I use the 20 oz. Crushed pinrapple because I love it. The picture was taken before the dry cske mix, butter and nuts were put on top before baking. Blueberry pie filling can be used in place of the cherry.
I like to use butter pecan. Or cherry chip cake mix. Experiment a little. I also melt the butter and pour over the cake (also use 1 1/2 – 2 sticks of margarine).

pam spencer no put in pineapple. cherry, then sprinkle cake mix to cover fruit then the butter and

Recipe says fruit first mixed together, then the pecans, then put the cake mix on top of the nuts then add the butter.

Recipe does not call for cake mix first: Spread in layers, crushed pineapple, cherry pie filling, chopped pecans (reserving (1/4 cup), dry cake mix, butter (cut-up in small pieces) and remaining pecans

Julie this is so very easy it doesn’t seem like it would work but its awesome. I make them all the time, fast n easy

All you people have to do is google Dump Cake.
This is not rocket science at all Seems most people can not read or comprehend. It’s a pity 🙄

Sounds great however if you put the fruit on the bottom why does the picture show the fruit on top? Very confused.

It really doesn’t matter the order in which you place the ingredients. Do it how you prefer 🙂

Looks delish, might try this combination next. I have made dump cake with apple pie filling and also blueberry pie filling (not mixed together) the family loves it!
