    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom of 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray.
  • 2
    Spread pie filling in baking dish.
  • 3
    Top with dry cake mix; gently shake pan to distribute evenly.
  • 4
    Pour melted butter over top, tilting pan to cover as much of top with butter as possible.
  • 5
    Bake 42 to 45 minutes or until mostly dry on top and bubbly around edges. Cool 10 minutes before serving. Serve warm with whipped topping or ice cream.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    When making our cherry dump cake recipe, remember canned cherry pie filling may contain an occasional pit. It’s helpful to take a closer look when spreading in the pan, before topping with cake mix.
  • tip 2
    Dump cakes – such as our cherry dump cake – can sometimes be difficult to determine doneness. It’s normal to see some wet spots, some dry cake mix and a crisp-like texture on top. Be sure the fruit mixture is bubbly around the edges of pan.
