Black Forest Dump Cake 

Yes, I do know I’ve posted a few dump cake recipes but they are so easy and so good that I can’t help experimenting with different variations!


Here are the ingredients for this dump cake. 

I poured the cherry pie filling into the baking pan. 

Sprinkle the chocolate cake mix on top.

Pour the melted butter on top of the cake mix. 

And baked it at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes. 

And out came a delicious, hot black forest dump cake!

Black Forest Dump Cake

I could not figure out what to make for dessert last night and because it ended up being a busy day I was not afforded a lot of time to come up with something.

I remembered I had a chocolate cake mix I bought when they were on sale for $0.99, and I knew I had a few cans on hand of cherry pie filling, so the idea was born lol.

Fingers crossed, I am hoping to spend most of the day outside getting started on all the stuff I want to cut out of wood with my scroll saw so I can get back to painting for Christmas!  Wish me luck lol!
