Pumpkin Dump Cake

I don't make the pumpkin dump cakes, but I do make other fruit dump cakes. This is how I make them (and they go fast in our home)

1 lg can fruit, undrained, or fruit pie filling (i have used cherry pie filling, pineapple, and peach, a fave)
1 box dry yellow or white cake mix (yellow is better, but have used both)


1 stick butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Dump fruit with juice or pie filling into lightly greased baking pan. I prefer to use a 9x9 inch pan for thicker cake, you can also use a 9x13 inch pan. Put cake mix evenly over top of fruit. Cut butter into several "pats" and lay on top of cake. Bake for 50-60 minutess. (02/16/2007)

For a healthier version you can omit the stick of butter in the "traditional" dump cake. I use a can of sliced peaches and a can of tidbit pineapple. Drain the juice into your reserve bowl, dump peaches into 13 x 9 baking dish (I like to chop mine up a bit at this point), dump pineapple bits, then dump yellow cake mix. Pour reserved juice on top and bake. It does have a more cake-like quality as opposed to the crispy top the butter tends to give, but it does cut the fat/calories.

This sounds like a good variation from the usual dump cake and the pumpkin should be on clearance next after Thanksgiving! :) (11/15/2007)

Pumpkin Dump Cake

I made this for a party Saturday. It received rave reviews and was thoroughly demolished! I do have one problem, though: It was more of a "dessert" than cake (no one seemed to mind!). It was not cut-able as cake; rather, it was softer. The only change I made from the recipe was to use fat-free evaporated milk. I have had this problem in the past with other dump cakes and am getting discouraged from making them. I even cooked this one longer than recommended, but it still was slightly mushy. Could the milk be the problem? Anyone with ideas? Cay from FL (04/07/2008)
