Cherry Dump Cake Recipe

Cherry Dump Cake Recipe

This Cherry Dump Cake Recipe couldn’t get any easier! With just 3 ingredients, you will have a delicious dessert for any occasion in no time! 

Cherry Dump Cake is not only a family-favorite, but a friend-favorite too! Cherry Dump Cake is my go-to dessert to bring to parties, BBQ’s and more! 

Confession! My Cherry Dump Cake was supposed to be with apples. But when I went to make it, we mysteriously could not find the can of apples. So cherry it was!

But, one of the best parts of this recipe is that you can really make it with any canned fruit you’d like: apple, blueberries, pineapple, peach, etc. I have even made a strawberry dump cake that was amazing!

While the name Cherry “Dump” Cake sounds kind of awful, I assure it is far from that! It’s just called Cherry Dump Cake because you simply “dump” the ingredients right into a baking pan! Totally foolproof! I have a ton more dump cake recipes.

How to make a Cherry Dump Cake 

You will need: 

A box of vanilla or white cake mix 
A can of cherry pie filling 
1 cup butter
Cinnamon 

To make your dump cake: 

Prepare a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. 
“Dump” in your cherry pie filling 


Then pour your dry cake mix over the filling,


Sprinkle some cinnamon over the top 
Slice butter and sprinkle on top of the cake.

Bake in a preheated oven at 350 for about 45 minutes or until the cake looks bubbly and golden brown. 

The best way to enjoy your cherry dump cake is to serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! 

You can also use your crock pot to make this dessert! Follow the same directions, but just cook on low for 4 hours or high for 2 hours.
