Dump cakes are all the rage these days. But this dump cake recipe is a twist on the one I first learned to make decades ago (we won’t talk about how many decades) as a teenager working in an outdoor camp. We installed an oven made from a metal trash can and baked it there. Since then, I have cooked it several times in a real indoor oven!
You can choose which fruits to use – the only criterion is that they must be juicy. Canned peaches work very well, for example. The juice mixes into the cake mix and the butter adds just a little creaminess. For this one, instead of using dry cake mix, I opted for a snickerdoodle cookie mix and used it, along with canned pineapple and fresh blueberries and strawberries. Yum! Serve this easy cake recipe with a dollop of ice cream or whipped cream.
Type of cuisine: American
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
Total duration: 35 minutes
- 1 package (17.9 ounces) snickerdoodle cookie mix (I used Betty Crocker which includes a packet of cinnamon sugar)
- 1 box (20 ounces) pineapple bites (do not drain)
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
- 1/4 cup butter, cut into small pieces
Here’s how to do it:
- Place the canned pineapple in 8 x 8 inch baking pan. I put blueberries on a third and strawberries on a second third and only left the last third pineapple. Use any fruit and any combination that works for you!
- Sprinkle dry cookie mix over fruit.
- Sprinkle with small pieces of butter. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top.
- Bake in preheated 350 degree F oven for about 30 minutes or until lightly browned. If there is a pocket of dry mix, take a spoon and stir lightly to mix with the juices.
To note: Experiment with other fruits or fruit combinations. Try using cake mix instead of cookie mix.
