Hawaiian Dump Cake

Dump cakes are quite possibly one of the easiest, yet tasty, cakes to make. This Hawaiian Dump Cake is no exception.  All you do is “dump” the ingredients into the baking dish and pop it into the oven.  No mixing required.  Can it get any easier than that?

All I did was layer cherry pie filling, crushed pineapple, box cake mix, butter, coconut and pecans to make this awesome tasting dump cake. Takes 5 or so minutes to prepare and then one hour to bake.  I got this into the oven and then started on my dinner.  Perfect timing…..the cake came out, I ate dinner and then had a warm piece of cake. You could let it cool more than I did if you like your cakes room temp.

The crazy thing is……I found the recipe in my BEST of the BEST from TEXAS cookbook.  Not sure why a Hawaiian Dump Cake was in that book.  But when I saw the list of ingredients, I had to make it.  Kinda reminds me of a Banana Split without the banana and ice cream.

In fact, this cake is most awesome when served warm with a scoop (or two or three) of vanilla ice cream on top.  *Licking my lips just thinking about it.
