EDITOR’S NOTE (May 20, 2019): Recipe updated to clearly show “2 cans (20 ounces each) of crushed pineapples (40 ounces total).
THE most popular dessert on my site! It contains tangy pineapples topped with a buttery yellow cake top crust. If desired, serve with vanilla ice cream or real whipped cream.
This dessert is my twist on Betty Crocker’s famous dump cake. Ingredients include yellow cake mix, pineapple tidbits (in juice) or crushed pineapples (in juice), sprinkled with lemon juice. Tangy deliciousness!
Homemade from scratch cakes are fabulous. I also love boxed mixes combined with various fruit fillings because they’re quick and easy to make.
In August 2018, I photographed this Pinterest page which is only visible to me. Photo confirms recipe received 164,000 impressions! As of November 2018, Pineapple Dump Cake has 670+ Pinterest pins. It is the #1 recipe in my collection.
Perfect dessert for holiday dinners. Easily doubled to feed a crowd. General Mills provided the Betty Crocker Yellow Cake Mix used to make this recipe.
