Do you remember dump cakes?
Careful, now. You will be dating yourself. Well,
whatever. I do remember
I also remember turning my nose up at them, as I was much more
of a purist
my younger days. Could it be that we mellow with age? In
any case, I understand
that there are still folks out there who enjoy both
the preparation and
the consumption thereof...
I think this is the kind of cake Dolly Parton was describing in 'Steel
Magnolias' when she said she always served it with ice cream "to cut
the sweetness". Mercy, mercy, mercy...
As you can well imagine, the variations are endless, but this should get
you started, at the very least!
Black Forest Cherry Dump Cake
20-ounce can crushed pineapple, with juice
1 cup flaked coconut
One 3.5-ounce package instant
vanilla pudding mix
(or, if you lean toward chocoholism,
go for chocolate pudding)
One 21-ounce can cherry pie filling
One 18.5-ounce package chocolate cake mix
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
Spread the pineapple in a 9- by 13-inch baking pan. Sprinkle a layer of
coconut on top of the pineapple, and then a layer of dry pudding mix.
Spread the cherry pie filling evenly over the pudding mix, then sprinkle
dry cake mix over the pie filling. Cut the butter into thin slices, and
arrange on top of the cake mix. That’s all there is to it!
Bake the cake at 350 degrees F for approximately one hour.
Cool in pan.
