Friday, May 26, 2023 @ 12:05 AM

Posted by Haley Bauer

This dump cake recipe is wonderful topped with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream!


3/4 cup butter, divided
2/3 cup packed brown sugar

1 jar (6 ounces) of maraschino cherries, drained
1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
1 can (20 ounces) of unsweetened pineapple tidbits or crushed pineapple, undrained
1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)
Vanilla ice cream, optional


-In a microwave, melt 1/2 cup butter; stir in brown sugar. Spread evenly onto the bottom of a greased 5-qt. slow cooker. Sprinkle with cherries and pecans; top with pineapple. Sprinkle evenly with dry cake mix. Melt remaining butter; drizzle over top.

-Cook, covered, on high for 2 hours, or until fruit mixture is bubbly. (To avoid scorching, rotate the slow cooker and insert a half turn midway through cooking, lifting carefully with oven mitts.)

-Turn off the slow cooker; let stand, uncovered, 30 minutes before serving. If desired, serve with ice cream.
