If you know my boys, you will know that they love dessert. And dessert just about any time of the day!

And if you know my boys, you will also know that they are extremely picky! They are known to not eat the things I post on this site.

Can you believe that! Well, seems like this is also true with other food bloggers — they create wonderful treats, and end up having to bring them to work or share them with friends as their families will not go near them.

Well, let me just say that this Pineapple Dump Cake was a huge it with the boys! Yeah! It’s super easy to make after dinner for a lip-smacking, satisfying dessert. And usually in the summer, I really hate turning on my oven — however I did cave in for this one.

The outcome, a refreshingly tangy treat. The sweet, juicy pineapple along with the unbeatable flavor of creamy vanilla cake mix topped with a crunchy and bubbling melted butter topping, turned into one sensational combination. I was in awe with every bite — and there were a lot!

Pineapple Dump Cake

By: Sheila | Sweet Baked Life


1 package yellow cake mix
1 can (20 oz) Dole Pineapple Chunks in 100% Juice
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted


Heat your oven to 350 degrees.

Pour pineapples and juice into a 13×9-inch baking dish (I used an oval dish for mine). Sprinkle the cake mix on top creating an even layer. Drizzle the melted butter over the top. Bake for 30-40 minutes, until cake is slightly golden and pineapples are bubbling.

Cool slightly on a rack (about 15 minutes), then cut and serve. This dessert is best served warm!

  1. I have made this so many times. I add more than 1/2 cup of butter. I usually use 1 stick and 1/2 of butter. We also like a little bit of Crust on the top, so I put it under the broiler until it is slightly brown. This recipe is so easy and so delicious and the family Loves it.
