Pineapple Upside Down Dump Cake is an Easy Dessert

This Pineapple Upside Down Dump Cake is a family favorite! It only has 5 ingredients and takes about 5 minutes to make. Seriously! I love quick and easy dessert recipes like this! This cake will be a staple in our house all summer long. Our favorite part of the whole cake is the topping. OMG! I could just make the topping and serve it with some ice cream and be a happy camper!

How To Make Pineapple Upside Down Dump Cake

This cake is super easy to make. Just dump the pineapple and cherries in the bottom of the cake pan. Top with some brown sugar and cake mix. Finally, top with butter and bake. No mixing, no extra dirty dishes, no spoons, just one pan. I had this ready to bake before my oven preheated! Woohoo!

Just a note about the cake mix. Do not make the cake. You are going to use the dry cake mix straight out of the box.

Dump Cake is Great for a Crowd

This cake is great for all your summer cookouts, potlucks, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter. Really anytime you need a quick and easy dessert! It tastes great warm out of the oven or cooled to room temperature. We like to serve the cake warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce. YUM!

  1. Just follow the recipe as it reads! It’s not that hard! Best thing I’ve ever ate!! The cake mix still crumbly is the best part! 😋😋😋

  2. I cooked it in an 9″x9″ baking pan & melted the butter. Poured the butter over the dry cake mix. Came out thicker and better. No dry cake mix like the last time I made a dump cake. Oh, and left the cherries out. Just too sweet for us.

  3. Do you dice the canned pineapple Or use crushed or even tidbits??? I’m not finding diced pineapple in cans.

  4. Making this now, I put it in a glass 9×13, will the bake time vary? It's been 25 minutes and still very lite in color, not brown

    1. All ovens are different, so baking times may vary. As you can see from the photos, my cake did not get very brown.
