Ingredients

  • 2 cans (21 oz each) cherry pie filling
  • 1 box Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ devil's food cake mix
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • Whipped topping or vanilla ice cream, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    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.

  • 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.
  • 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.
