Texas Blue Bell Dump Cake

At the time I was living in Texas, Dump Cake and Brisket were the stars of many a backyard barbecue. The cake mix dotted with butter creates a rich crust similar to a Betty or cobbler; but extremely rich. The religious rite required a scoop of vanilla Blue Bell ice cream to top it off.

1 box pudding in the box yellow cake mix
1 can chopped pineapple
1 can cherry pie filling
1-2 sticks of butter or margarine

Preheat oven to 350°. In a 13X9 baking pan pour in cherry filling and pineapple. Casually stir around. Pour dry cake mix over fruit, completely covering fruit. Slice butter into thin slices and place over cake mix, slices should touch. Bake for 1 hour until top is browned. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

  • i never liked, or thought i liked baked fruit pies or cobblers till i had this one, a variation with peaches. yum yum! from this it opened up a whole new world of pies and desserts!

  • It is definitely not the typical cobbler. Peaches sound like a great option. I am sure with a little tweaking we could figure out a healthier version.
