I remember being a kid and one of my favorite treats from the ice cream man was Good Humor’s Strawberry Shortcake. Ok, it still is haha.

As you know, we love making dump cakes. So this Strawberry Shortcake Dump Cake is one of my favorite cake recipes given my childhood love for strawberry shortcake. Dump cakes are some of the easiest dessert recipes and you know I am all about easy recipes! We always have fresh strawberries at home and there are so many delicious strawberry desserts you can enjoy if you are looking for new recipes.

This easy dump cake recipe is made with simple ingredients and is the perfect dessert. You literally “dump” in a can of strawberries, strawberry cake mix and butter. Done. It takes maybe 5 minutes, if that, to make this delicious dessert.

Everyone loves these dump cakes. They’re a perfect no fuss dessert and a great option for when you want something sweet or even when you need a dessert to bring to a party or get together. Dump Cakes are a delicious way to give cake mixes a little extra pizzazz.

I love the taste of strawberry pie filling. It reminds me of the topping of a cheesecake! Many of my friends have said this recipe reminds them of a delicious strawberry cobbler.

Pour the melted sticks of butter over the top of the cake mix. Or slice butter and scatter it on top of cake mix. Don’t worry about the dry spots, the butter will melt covering the whole thing.

Top the dump cake with slices of fresh berries.

If you would like to add cinnamon sugar or vanilla extract to your cake mix, it’s my favorite way to add some more flavor to one of my favorite recipes. If you would like to try out a strawberry cheesecake dump cake, you can spread softened cream cheese over the strawberry filling.

What should I top my Strawberry Shortcake Dump Cake with?

The whole family loves to enjoy this amazing recipe with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, ice cream or strawberry ice cream, homemade whipped cream or cool whip. I just love the flavor combination of the crumbly topping with a scoop of ice cream on top of the cake.

How should I store this recipe?

Cover your dump cake with plastic wrap or transfer to an airtight container. Store the whole yummy cake in the refrigerator for a few days.

When we want to have a quick dessert, we scoop out some into a microwavable bowl and heat up the dump cake at 30-45 seconds.

What if I can’t find Strawberry Cake Mix?

I have heard from some that grocery stores don’t always have the strawberry cake mix. It’s ok! You can also use a box of yellow cake mix or a box of white cake mix. I am sure it will be a delicious cake nonetheless! The can of strawberry pie filling has enough sweetness and strawberry flavors to make up for it.
