Vegan Pineapple Upside-Down Dump Cake

User Rating 4.5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


I love dump cakes! With just a few simple ingredients added to a basic yellow cake mix, this pineapple-upside down "dump" cake is ready to pop into the oven in just two minutes. Its called a "dump" cake because that's what you do! No mixing needed, just dump the ingredients right into the cake pan! If you're vegan, be sure to use a vegan cake mix, such as Duncan Hines.

An easy, delicious, vegan dessert!, Guest tkosleuth

I had never heard of a ""dump cake"" before, but now that I have I will make this and others like it as much as I can! I pretty much followed the recipe, and I actually thought it had a little too much vegan butter in it. I didn't add sugar or nuts to it although nuts would be a good addition. It did seem a little runny, so I baked it a little longer. I baked it about 40-45 mins versus 30 mins. Next time I'll probably just get any type of diced fruit instead of crushed so I can drain a little bit of the juice out. A slight change: I used leftover cranberry sauce instead pie filling. It worked quite well and I like the combination of pineapple and cranberry.
