Just made this today, and my hubby was practically kissing my feet! SO DELICIOUS!!! I even omitted the coconut and nuts, but it was still to-die-for yummy. Couldn't be easier to make, either. A solid five stars.

This is excellent, especially warm. Easy to make. It lost a star because a lot of the cake mix wasn't being baked (it was just staying the dry mix), so I ended up having to pour a little water over the dry spots so it would bake, but that worked like a charm and 4 people ate a half a pan in one night!

This is the recipe I use from a church cookbook however, my recipe does not call for the walnuts. I will be sure to try that next time. It is so incredibly easy and delicious. Thanks for posting.

Everyone went home with the recipe.The stores around will wonder what's going on? :-) Ingrid Ps: I made it again! This time I combined the Lemon Pie filling, Coconut and pineapple.

This is a great tasting cake. The only thing I did was put the nuts on the last half of cooking time.

I was a cook for a Hospice facility and made dump cakes quite a bit as they always went over. I use the peach pie filling, crushed pineapple in its own juice, white cake mix and finely chopped mac nuts. I never add coconut as it dries up. My recipe originally came from the Cake Doctor series and I used 1.5 sticks of butter, thinly sliced (NOT MELTED) and placed over entire surface of cake mix. Not for every day but boy howdy, this one always disappeared before I came in the next day.

We love pineapple and coconut in nearly anything, but were disappointed by this cake. It didn't moisten up througout and the coconut texture was a bit unpleasant for us somehow. Would love to find a way to make these flavors work and may try to alter this in the future to work for us.

I made this cake for Chef I Am's Cake-A-Thon and it didnt work to well for me. Layered the ingredients in the order listed but for some reason my cake only started baking where the melted butter was. After about 45 minutes I took it out of the oven and folded some of the uncooked cake mix in with the cooked. This helped but the cake still did not bake all the way. My end result was a loose fudge type brownie cake, the coconut was crunchy, but it did have a very good flavor with the cherries and pineapple. Will make this again soon and try to fiqure out what I did wrong.
