Cherry & Pineapple Dump Cake Recipe


  • 1 can (21 oz) Cherry Pie Filling
  • 1 can (15 oz) Pineapple Tidbits
  • 1 box (about 18 oz) Yellow or White Cake Mix
  • 1 stick Margarine
  • 1/2 stick Butter
  • Whipped Cream or Ice Cream (optional)


Dump the cherry pie filling and pineapple tidbits in a baking dish (a 12" cast iron skillet is perfect) and stir together.

Sprinkle the dry cake mix over the top of the fruit. Slice the margarine and butter and distribute it evenly across the surface of the cake mix.

Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 (or other cooker) to 350°F. Bake the dump cake for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

The cake is done when the crust is golden brown and slightly firm to touch. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream if desired.
