Ask Jamie: Dump Cake

Kristi asks in the comments on this post:

But what is dump cake?

Mmm… dump cake. It sounds gross, but is very easy and quite delicious! They don’t photograph well, so I won’t share a picture with you, but they taste great and are quite yummy. The ‘dump’ of dump cake is just dumping a box of cake mix over the top of other ingredients and not mixing.
My favorite dump cake recipe is this Weight Watcher friendly one:
Dump Cake
2 bags frozen fruit (or 3 cups fresh fruit)
1 cake mix
1 diet pop
Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9 x 13 pan with PAM. Dump in fruit. Sprinkle cake mix on top. Pour diet soda over the top. Bake for approximately 45 to 50 minutes until the top is golden. 12 servings – 4 points each. Great served warm with fat free vanilla ice cream. You can experiment with different flavors but my two favorites are blackberries/yellow cake/diet sprite and blueberries/vanilla cake/diet cream soda.
The dump cake from the post that I referenced above is this recipe:
Pumpkin Dump Cake
1 29 oz. can pumpkin
1 12 oz can evaporated milk
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
3 tsp cinnamon
1 box yellow cake mix
1 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup melted butter
Preheat oven to 350. Mix first six ingredients in a large bowl and pour into a 9 x 13 pan sprayed with PAM. Sprinkle cake mix on top and then cover with pecans. Pour melted butter over the top. Bake for 50 minutes.

  1. I love dump cake and it is SO easy to make. I make mine with crushed pineapple, cherry pie filling, yellow cake mix on top of that. half stick melted butter and chopped nuts. Bake until golden. I haven't made it in forever since I am trying to lose weight!

    I will have to try the WW one.

  2. Thanks for the recipes! I'll have to try the WW one…the other one sounds just like the one I made for Thanksgiving…yum!
