My good friend, Cathy first introduced me to dump cakes. At every get-together, Cathy would make her fabulous blueberry dump cake with the fresh blueberries she picked at our local blueberry farm during the summer. Her fruity desserts were always the hit of every party and my kids would always ask me if I could please make sure Ms. Cathy could provide the dessert for the next gathering.

It amazed me when she told me how easy her dump cake was to make.

Dump Cake

A dump cake is a very simple dessert that is usually made with a base of cake mix and fruit filling. You literally “dump” the ingredients into a pan, stir, and bake.

A typical dump cake is made in a 9 x 13-inch baking pan or something similar in size. Instead, I used a smaller 7 x 5-inch and found it to be the perfect size if cooking for one or two people.

Cherry Dump Cake Recipe

For this Cherry Dump Cake recipe, I used half of a box of cake mix, which is about 1 1/2 cups.

To the mix I add one 10-ounce jar of Maraschino cherries with the juice, half of a can of cherry pie filling and a half of a stick of butter.

The idea behind a dump cake is that you literally dump all of the ingredients in a baking dish.

First start off by dumping the jar of Maraschino cherries into the pan, then dump in the cherry pie filling.

Top it all off with the cake mix and add slices of the butter to the top.
