You can imagine the humor this cake spawned in my house growing up. With a name like "Dump Cake" it was bound to be the basis of plenty of stupid jokes but despite the name it's a good recipe.
It's simple enough to qualify as White Trash Food but that doesn't stop me from making it when I'm racing to find something quick for dessert. Recipes that only have five ingredients and are ready in under a half an hour are just gold. I don't care if they come from a can.
You know . . . I bet this is the dessert Martha makes for herself when no one's looking.
1 15-ounce can crushed pineapple
1 20-ounce can of cherry pie filling
1 box yellow cake mix
1/2 cup melted butter
whipped cream for topping
Now be careful--these directions are pretty tricky so make sure you follow it carefully:
Pour the can of pineapple into a lightly greased 9x13 rectangular pan. Spoon the pie filling over the top. Pour the cake mix over that, followed by the melted butter evenly poured over the whole thing. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Top with whipped cream.
Not too classy, not too hard but highly satisfying.
