Dump Cake V

"This recipe for dump cake is more like a cobbler type dessert than it is a cake. I serve it in a bowl with whipped cream, ice cream, or frozen whipped topping. It is quick to prepare and it is delicious."

Didn't melt the butter, used the butter pats on top like suggested by others but still had dry spots where the cake mix didn't get wet. May try again and will mix the melted butter with the cake...

Delicious & easy! I used only 1/2 cup of melted butter & 1/2 cup of the drained pineapple juice so it wouldn't have so much fat from the butter. I used light cherry pie filling too. Made mine...

Great recipe! Also made it with blueberry pie filling in place of the cherries and strawberry pie filling minus the pineapple. So easy and yummy. I also make it the night before so it has tim...

I tripled the recipe and brought it to work for a co-worker's birthday. We served it topped with vanilla ice cream. It was a big success, and I've even had a request for the recipe (I would have...

I love dump cake--but I use a can of tart pie cherries instead of the cherry pie filling. It gets rid of that artificial pre-made pie-filling taste, and cuts down on the sweetness. It's still ...

I substituted devil's food cake mix for the yellow and distributed the melted butter evenly with a spatula. I omitted nuts and coconut. The top came out like brownies. The dessert was delicious ...

I had this at a barbeque this summer and loved it! I use tart cherry filling instead of pie filling (so much better) and I used PINEAPPLE cake mix instead of yellow! It gives it more flavor!!!...

There are many versions of dump cake. Other recipes call for only a 1/2 cup of butter/margarine instead of the full cup. I have made it both ways and I think that the crust is firmer and crisp...

Quick, easy, and quite a hit! I used pecans instead of walnuts. Ice cream with this cake is a MUST! Thanks for the recipe!
