      This was super easy to make and tasted good. Like a crumble as other posters mentioned. Didn't find it overly sweet. I used french vanilla cake mix as thats what I had on hand, and strawberry-rhubarb pie filling and can of crushed pineapple including the juice (as I had read someplace that various flavours of pie fillings could all be used) and had warm from the oven with vanilla ice cream. Omitted coconut and nuts due to my family 'pickiness' but think that pecans would be a nice addition. My only negative is that 1/2 cup margarine did not seem to be enough. When the cake is baking, any area that had margarine incorporated the dry cake mix well but 1/2 cup does not incorporate it all, so there were crumb parts that I had to mix in towards the end to make sure they got moistened, or otherwise, we would have been eating raw, gritty cake mix! Not that I want to add calaries, but next time, I'll use maybe a 1/4 cub more margarine. I did notice that other recipe searches today call for up to a full cup of margarine, so perhaps other recipe posters noticed the same thing.

      This cake is wonderful and just so easy to put together! I just love it! My dad wasn't willing to share it with someone we wanted to because that guy simply loves cakes and we weren't sure we'd get a bite if we gave him the cake. So guess what happened? I made TWO! And both went very very well! Thanks for posting a simply wonderful dessert!

      My husband really loves this dessert.It tastes great warm with vanilla ice cream.I have always made it without the coconut and nuts because that's just how he prefers it.I've seen a lot of recipes for dump cake that call for two sticks of butter but I can't bring myself to use that much so I always just use one.It will sometimes have a few dry spots but it still tastes delicious after it cooks.
