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.
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 fool proof!
