Dump Cake

(6 servings)

  • 1 package cake mix - yellow or white
  • 2 cans of pie filling - apple or cherry
  • 1 stick butter
Spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray.

Dump in the cake mix. Dump the pie filling on top. Place pieces of butter all over the top. Do not mix.

Cook for about 25 minutes at 350 degrees.

A Note From Mr Breakfast:

One breakfast lover kindly wrote in saying that she prepared this recipe and had bad results. Specifically, the dry cake mix remained dry on the bottom of the pan after cooking.

Based on similar Dump Cake recipes, we would recommend the following adjustments to the recipe:

Use only 1 can of pie filling (21 oz)

Use an 18 oz box of cake mix

Increase butter to 1 cup and make sure it's either melted or very soft

Layer the pie filling first. Sprinkle on the cake mix. Then drizzle or spead the butter on top. Increase cooking time to 30 to 40 minutes.

Mr Breakfast appreciates hearing from breakfast lovers regarding the success, or, unfortunately sometimes, the problems you have with the recipes our users have submitted. Thanks!

Great for scouting trips. This can be cooked over a campfire in Dutch oven.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank melvan24 for this recipe.
