TROPICAL DUMP CAKE

Pinched from facebook posting to my page. Yummy.

This cake is crunchy on top and wet on the bottom so a cake tester doesn’t work well.

One hour baking was perfect.

Already a family favorite. My first orange cake tried!

This dump cake is perfect to bring to a Spring or Summer party or simply just to make for your family.  That’s what I did today.  They certainly never mind being my taste testers.

Easy dessert
I love the flavor of pineapple and I didn’t want to make the usual upside-down cake with it.

Had a couple of cans of tropical fruit salad in the cupboard–I love that with some cream–and of course I always have canned pineapple on hand. I also had some maraschino cherries in the fridge from another project. And oh yeah, there’s always coconut here because that’s another passion of mine.

INGREDIENTS:

1 20 ounce can cubed or crushed pineapple
1 15 ounce can tropical fruit
1 package of orange cake mix
1 1/2 sticks of butter
1/2 cup instant oatmeal
1 cup coconut flakes

 

 

DIRECTIONS:

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Dump both of the fruits & their juices into a 9 x 12 Pyrex baking dish. Pour the dry cake mix on top of the fruit & spread out evenly. Mix oatmeal & coconut & sprinkle over cake mixture with fingers. Melt butter & pour on top evenly. It should cover the entire cake mix. Bake for one hour & serve with ice cream.
