Blueberry, Apple and Pineapple Dump Cake

I call this B.A.P. dump cake. I usually take it to our church potluck and it is the first dessert to go! Sometimes I sprinkle a little extra sugar over the nuts. —Mitzi Erthal, Godfrey, Illinois

Blueberry, Apple and Pineapple Dump Cake Tips

Why is it called a dump cake?

Sure, it’s a funny name, but it’s called a dump cake because of the quick method of dumping in fruit, nuts, or other goodies with a box of cake mix all at the same time in one bowl. The cake mix at the top gives the dish a crispy, crunchy topping.

What goes with blueberry, apple and pineapple dump cake?

Nothing goes better with this warm dump cake than creamy homemade ice cream.

Can I freeze dump cake?

You can make it ahead of time and freeze dump cake for up to a month. Just be sure to fully defrost it in the fridge before popping back into the oven at 350 degrees to heat back up.

What adjustments can I make to this recipe?

No-fuss dump cakes are so easy to customize! Swap in different cans of fruit filling, toast the nuts for deeper flavor or use your family’s favorite ingredients to make it yours. Research contributed by Maggie Knoebel, Taste of Home Culinary Assistant

    Our favorite is with cherry pie filling at Christmas or valentines! No need to mix pie filling & pineapple. Just dump and spread!

    This is one of the best recipes I have ever tried for a dessert!!!! My husband and grand daughter absolutely loved it . Very easy to do and freezes well, too. I changed the recipe slightly - used roasted pecans and almonds as well. Roasting the nuts really brings out the flavor in them. Would be great to take to a pot luck dinner. But be careful everyone will want seconds. Margie Peart in Penticton, BC, Canada.
