Slow Cooker Cherry Dump Cake

Christmas is such a magical time of year that is full of family and friends. Don’t forget the food! Everyone loves a big Christmas dinner and those holiday baked goods will throw any diet off track. I don’t know about you, but I would rather spend my time visiting and enjoying the spirit of the holiday than in the kitchen. Let your slow cooker do the work. Instead of pie, try this Slow Cooker Cherry Dump Cake. It is just as delicious, with none of the work.

It seriously took my less than 5 minutes to put this in my slow cooker and get it started. Three hours later, amazing deliciousness! If you prefer apple or any other pie filling, just switch them out.

You are going to want to use a larger slow cooker for this recipe. Mine is a 6-quart slow cooker.

Open the can of pie filling and spread it out over the bottom of the slow cooker.

Top with the dry cake mix and then drizzle the melted butter or margarine over the top.

Cover and let it do it’s thing for 2-1/2 to 3 hours on LOW. DO NOT OPEN THE LID. Every time you open the lid you are releasing heat and moisture. Increasing the dryness and the cook time.

  1. Pamela Gurganus says:

    I never would have though of making a dump cake in the slow cooker! I love it baked in the oven, so I know I’ll love it from the slow cooker! YUM!!! :)

  2. I never tried any cake in a slow cooker

  3. I’ve never slow cooked a dessert, but this golden Cherry Dump Cake makes me want to give it a try.

  4. sharon bugar says:

    My favorite type of fruit pie filling would be blueberry! I have made a peach cobbler in a slow cooker and this cherry dump cake sounds good to me.

  5. ready to try this one , may use blue berrys

  6. I am making this tomorrow!!! YUM!

  7. Jennifer Reynolds says:

    My family and friends LOVE when I make dump cakes!

  8. Margie Tomlin says:

    This looks so easy I think I may try this for Christmas!

  9. Wow I can’t believe this can be made in a slow cooker. I really want to try this.

  10. Don McKiernan says:

    I am soooo going to try this. Can’t wait.

  11. Sounds like another good recipe to try.

  12. Sara Sullivan says:

    Cherry is my fave!

  13. Great dessert for the holiday season.

  14. WOW, this is the easiest ever. It looks delicious.

  15. Teresa Knittingdancer says:

    Peach. I have always baked my dump cakes in the oven. I will try this recipe.

  16. Thank you! I’ve made dump cakes for years but never in a crock pot. I need to learn how to adapt regular recipes for use in the crock pot.

  17. Cherry pie is my favorite. Will be making this today.

  18. Elizabeth Matthiesen says:

    from the name of this recipe I thought oh dear I’m not going to like this but hey presto it is a super recipe (I love those cherries) and definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing with us :-)

  19. Ken Peabody says:

    Forget the recipe… I want the slow cooker!

  20. I’ve tried these, but mine come out with dry, raw lumps of cake mix…

  21. Cheryl Bomar says:

    Cherries are my favorite!!! This is so simple to make and will be making it!!!

  22. Of course I want the Slow Cooker, however the Cherry Dump Cake looks tasty and I plan on trying it.

  23. I wonder if you used a chocolate cake mix if it would taste like those chocolate covered cherries you can only find at Christmas time?

  24. I would go with the cherry or perhaps apple.

  25. Kim Thomas says:

    Sounds wonderful! I have a question not sure if this is a good place for it or not but here
    goes. The instructions for my slow cooker says that it has to be at least half full when
    cooking so I do not damage the appliance. I figure this dump cake is not going to make
    the half way mark. Does anyone else abide by this rule of thumb? Is it important?
    Thanks ahead of time for any advice, I am just getting into slow cooking and it is great.

  26. I have other favorites, but my husband’s favorite is cherry so this will be an automatic favorite

  27. Wow, 3 ingredients…..definitely a must try!

  28. Micki Ireland says:

    My favorite pie filling is peach paired with spice cake.

  29. Nothing simpler than make a cake with only three ingredients. I’ve also seen one made with crushed pineapple. What a different change for dessert.

  30. Richard Eiche says:

    Looks and sounds delicious. Will try this weekend.

  31. Katrina Neason says:

    This recipe may get me in trouble with my family, this season. We are *supposed* to be trying to *lose* weight, despite all the holiday food. I don’t see that happening with recipes like this, but, with food this good, who cares?

  32. This is the perfect recipe to make with pantry staples when you don’t have time to bake from scratch. Thanks!

  33. THis sounds like it would be worth a try.

  34. I’m not much of a cook. Honestly, I really don’t like to cook. I’m more of a ‘gearhead’! LOL! However, this looks & sounds yummy & so very easy that I think I could even make this! I’d even like to try it with apple & cinnamon & peaches! Makes my mouth water!

  35. Shirley Conley says:

    My favorite is apple but my family loves cherry. I am going to try this recipe this weekend it looks so delicious and easy thanks for sharing

  36. Oh Ille have to try this recipe!

  37. William Algie says:

    Can’t wait to try this recipe with my new Hamilton Beach Slow Cooker.

  38. Joanne Schultz says:

    wow – how easy is that! Looks & sounds dellicious!

  39. Bonita Anderson says:

    Oooooo- I haven’t make a dump cake in ages! Think I’d better try this!

  40. Apples and cinnamon.

  41. Cindy Sherwood says:

    I love cherry pie filling (even without the crust) :)

  42. My husband loves dump cake, but I’ve never tried it in a slow cooker. This would be fun to try!

  43. oh so easy and so good,one of my favs.

  44. I make and keep homemade cake mix handy just for impromptu treats like dump cakes. Thanks for this recipe: Sounds delish and so easy!

  45. This would be something easy for hubby to take to ‘grazing day’ at work.

  46. Rebecca Wilson says:

    That dump cake sounds amazing! Never tried anything like that in a slow cooker.

  47. Add a little almond, for tartness, a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and I/m there—move over!!!!

  48. Anita Jones says:

    one word…YUM!

  49. I’ve never tried something like this …

  50. Martha Pratt says:

    I have heard of desserts made in a slow cooker, but never tried it,- I think I will soon. Sounds good!

  51. I guess I like peach pie better than any other!

  52. Yummy—only I’d use a dark chocolate cake mix and end up with a Black Forest Cake !!

  53. I don’t like cherry but bet blueberry is great

  54. My eyes (and stomach) are continually being opened to awesomeness of slow cooking. Can’t wait to try this recipe :)
