This is advice to others who might be turned off by previous comments. Dump cake is not somethig Jessica invented. The first one I made had cherry pie filling (yum), and I have tried blueberry, apple, and peach pie filling. The cherry dump cake recipe uses cinnamon; therefore, I use plenty with all of the pie fillings. Also, don't bother cutting the butter; just melt it. Vary the amount of butter depending your taste. (Real butter makes a big difference.) I like cake mix on the top and bottom. Experiment. Blueberry, apple, and peach pie filling might need added sweetener or sugar; just taste it before assemblying the cake.
Don't expect an actual cake to pop out of the oven; expect a cobbler. If you're not pleased, try changing something (i.e. the amount of butter, coverage of the butter, sweetener, cooking time, etc.)
