If you have never made a dump cake, you are missing out! This Cherry Dump Cake is only 3 ingredients, delicious and a cinch to throw together. Cherry Dump Cake is hands down my youngest sons favorite dessert. He has asked for this cake for his birthday for several years now, and just the other day asked me to make it out of the blue. We don't do dessert very much, but when we do I usually ask the kids what they want. We were having dinner discussing this very topic, and my son asked if I would make his favorite for dessert “Cherry Dump Cake” and asked if we specifically could have it on that coming Friday. What is so funny is the entire week goes by, and he wakes up for school late and is running out the door to leave with his sisters and runs back in the kitchen and yell's mom “Don't forget to make the dump cake tonight”! Hahaha, cute huh? What so funny is he literally can't remember anything,- I mean what teenage boy can? But this Cherry Dump cake was top of mind for him so much that he had to run back to remind me to not forget to make it. Just love this sweet boy! So fun little story to say, sometimes it is the littlest things that make all difference. For him that little thing was mom making him a cherry dump cake.

How could I refuse that request? So before he got home from practice, I made it ready for him just like he loves it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!

I mean look at that smile! Isn't priceless? Perfect snack for after track practice. He was so excited.

Ingredients: Cherry Dump Cake

  • 42 oz cherry pie filling
  • 13.25 yellow cake mix
  • 12 tbsp butter

Instructions: Cherry Dump Cake

  • Preheat oven to 350
  • In a 9×13 dish pour two cans of cherry pie filling on to the bottom and smooth out until it covers the bottom of the dish. I don't grease my 9X13 but you can if you want.
  • Then on top of the cherry pie filling pour cake mix and smooth even until it covers the pie filling.
  • Then take one and half sticks of butter and slice and put the pads of butter on top covering the entire cake.
  • Bake at 350 until gold and bubbly around 45-55 mins

We love to serve ours straight out of the oven nice and bubbly hot.

With a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. So delicious!

Trust me its the perfect dessert for family night or even guests too! Its the dessert you didn't know you had been missing! Easy, affordable and delicious!

Crazy Busy Mama Tip:

To avoid a bit of mess on your hands, try cutting butter that is right out of the fridge instead of softened butter. You could also take that butter and melt it and pour on top too.

Don't have ice cream, this is also yummy with whip cream.
