Dump Cake

I recently learned a new dessert recipe and have been wanting to share it with you. I wanted to have pictures, but the first time I made it, it was gone in about 10 seconds, and I have not had a good excuse to make dessert for 10 since (and we would probably eat it ourselves if I did make it!)

Here's what you need:
2 large cans of sugar free cherry pie filling
1 large can of crushed pineapple in it's own juice
1 box of sugar free yellow cake mix
12 tbsp of some type of low cal butter (i use Smart Balance with Omega-3)... it doesn't matter, most butter is evil :)

So simple:
Spread your cherries on the bottom of the pan. Layer the pineapple over the cherries. Dump the cake mix over the fruit. Place the dollops of butter evenly around the pan on top of the cake mix. DON'T MIX ANYTHING TOGETHER. Place in the oven at 350 degrees, and bake until your butter melts over your cake and it starts to look crispy.

So calorie count has been changing their website, so i wasn't able to do my normal nutrition form, but I did figure the calories. I will try to remember and update this when their site is up again.

Trust me it's worth saving 200 calories for! Yum!


  1. Have you ever made the diet pop cake? The one where you mix one box of cake mix and one can of diet pop? I really want to see how it would turn out, but haven't tried it, how bout you?

  2. This is a great, easy recipe. I've made it before and since it's so easy and yummy it's definitely a keeper!

  3. Mmmmmm, sounds delicious! Must try!! Thank you!
