Dumps cakes are the easiest dessert to make. I like to keep a few cans of pie filling and cake mix in the pantry just incase I need to make a quick dessert.
If you've never make a dump cake before, you'll love how easy it is to make a dump cake.
There are many different flavor combinations that you can make. I really like this cherry dump cake recipe version.
what you need to make cherry dump cake:
- yellow cake mix
- cherry pie filling
- almond extract
The almond extract is really necessary for this dump cake recipe. I know that it might not be a common extract to keep in your pantry. The almond pairs perfectly with the cherries.
A little almond extract is also really good in sugar cookies. If you can't find almond extract at your local store, you can order it online!
how to make a dump cake
First you'll need to preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Pour both cans of cherry pie filling into prepared baking dish. Add the almond extract and stir.
Sprinkle the yellow cake mix evenly over cherry pie filling. Don't stir. You want to keep the pie filling and cake mix separate.
Carefully pour the melted butter all over the top of the cake mix. It's okay if the butter doesn't cover the whole cake, but it should cover most of the cake mix.
Bake for about 45-55 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
can the cherry dump cake be made vegan?
Yes! For a vegan cherry dump cake, use a vegan-friendly yellow cake mix. Look for a cake mix without and milk products. For the butter, use a vegan plant-based butter.
If you are short on time and don't have enough time to bake a cake from scratch, dump cakes are the perfect dessert to make instead.
The Cherry Pie Filling Dump Cake is best served with ice cream.
There is just something about the combination of a warm dessert and vanilla ice cream.
