Dump Cake Tips & Tricks
- Be very very careful when you remove the pan from the oven. The berries will be boiling and you could get burnt if you aren’t careful.
- You can choose to use just blueberry or strawberry pie filling if you want. You can also use other pie fillings to change the flavor. Cherry pie filling would be great.
- Feel free to omit or change the pecans to a different nut. Walnuts or almonds would also be great.
- Serve with a helping of ice cream and enjoy!
How do dump cakes work?
Dump cakes are often confused with cobblers as they are made very similar. To make a dump cake, one or two fruits (fresh, frozen, or canned) are placed in the bottom of a greased baking dish, dry cake mix is sprinkled over the fruit layer, and melted butter is drizzled on top.
Does a dump cake have to be refrigerated?
Yes, once the cake has cooled, you will want to store it in the fridge covered tightly with plastic wrap or a lid. You can store it for up to 5 days.
