~ Yummy Dump Cake ~

Earlier this week I had a little dinner get together for my Kemble friends. We all have worked for the local school district and having been getting together every other month for dinner for over 30 years...yup, we go way back. Originally there were three of us and now we total 8. I served an Italian dinner and I wanted to share dessert with you. This is such a simple dessert but so delish...well, we all loved it. I was going through my recipe box trying to find a dessert recipe when I came across Dump Cake...I haven't fixed this in ages, but love it. Click on the card and you can read the directions. As the name implies, you just dump and spread the ingredients in a greased pan.
I prepare my dish with a bit of butter and then spray with a touch of Pam. First evenly spread, the undrained pineapple in the bottom of the pan, then the cherry pie filling and then sprinkle the yellow cake mix over this.....
The recipe calls for pecans but I used walnuts...sprinkle theses next and then top with butter. No counting calories today. Pop in the oven and bake for 48 to 53 minutes.
Right out of the oven....all bubbly and smells so good. This can be served warm or cooled.
Top with whipped cream or ice cream and enjoy. Have a wonderful weekend....hugs, Linda

The cake looks delicious. I'm going to try it next week. It's amazing how pineapple makes baked goods so moist and delicious. My daughter puts it in her zucchini bread recipe. The best thing is that you have been having get togethers with the same friends for so long. How wonderful. There is nothing like old friends.
Hugs,
Sweetie
