5 Ingredient Dump Cake

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Karen=^..^=

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!

Dump cake is Divine. Easy to assemble and bake. Great recipe for a beginner baker. I substituted chopped walnuts for pecans and it was great. I could not find my 13x9 baking pan (due to remodel) so I used two 9" cake pans and divided ingredients evenly. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I will add Dump Cake to our Thanksgiving dessert menu. My hubby loves it too.
