This is another dump cake variation (see my recipes for a chocolate 3 ingredient one), this one with pineapples, cherries, yellow cake mix and nuts. The best thing about these cakes is that there are no bowls to wash, no mixing and no grief. Just dump it all in the pan and bake!
This recipe has evolved over the years and i have no idea where the original idea came from.I do know it disappears quickly . You can make this a day or two in advance .Remember to store in the fridge.
This 3-ingredient recipe can be made at home in a conventional pan or in a dutch oven over an open fire. Super-easy and delicious! It is my "signature" dessert that I make for guests on packtrips, and at home I make a healthier version of it for myself (since I end up eating the whole thing).
I have tried several variations of dump cake and made up my own one day when I needed some comfort! ;) This one is by far the favorite of anyone I have served it to. I make several different flavors and fillings at work potlucks and since I made this one, that is all everyone requests! Once you make it, you'll know why, just make sure you have your favorite vanilla ice cream on hand to go along with it. :)
My friend Dawn sent me this recipe to try, and I did... It's like a pumpkiny custard on the bottom and crumb topping on top, and loaded with nuts. It's just plain WONDERFUL! Great anytime, but also for the holidays, and a lot easier and quicker than making a pie :D I made this for the Cake-A-Thon to honor Chef-I-Am October 2007. I know she would have loved this cake :) Here's to you Tina!
