Easy Just-Dump-It-In Cake

Time is, for many people, at a premium anymore. When you work, have a family to care for, have kids to run to activities, there just isn’t always time for baking the way our grandmothers did. This is a delicious cake recipe that requires only a few minutes to put together and has almost no time consuming clean-up. My mother used to throw this cake together when people would show up unexpectedly, because in our home, when people stopped by, food was always offered. Next time you need to throw a desert together on short notice with almost no clean-up I hope you give this cake a try. I think you will really enjoy it’s flavor as well as the ease.


  •  1 can cherry pie filling
  • 1 20 oz can of crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 1 yellow cake mix
  • 2 sticks of butter (1/2 lb.) – melted
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease or spray with cooking spray a 9 x 13 inch pan. Pour pie filling into pan and then pour crushed pineapple over the pie filling. Sprinkle dry cake mix over the pineapple. Pour melted butter over the top of the cake mix. Top with coconut and then with chopped pecans.

Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 50 minutes. Can be served warm or after cooled. Top with whipped topping if desired.
