Pineapple-Cherry Dump Cake

Yield Makes 12 servings
Go ahead and have a second helping of this cake—we made this lip-smacking dessert lighter by using light pie filling.


  • 1 (15 1/4-ounce) can unsweetened crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 1 (20-ounce) can light cherry pie filling
  • 1 (18.25-ounce) package white cake mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

How to Make It

  1. Spread crushed pineapple evenly into a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Spread cherry pie filling over pineapple.

  2. Stir together cake mix, 1 cup water, and oil just until blended. (Batter will be lumpy.) Pour over cherry filling. Sprinkle with pecans.

  3. Bake at 350° for 40 to 50 minutes or until cake is golden.
